Experience + Passion

Meet Our Team

The problems we help address affect people in life-changing ways: their health; their security; the availability of food; and survival of the planet.

So we’ve brought together a well-connected, eclectic and international team of experienced investors, entrepreneurs, operators, and specialists to help tackle them.

We do this together with our academic founders; it is their trailblazing scientific research that underpins each portfolio company and drives our success.
