AENU era of impact
with long-term capital for tech-entrepreneurs who solve the climate crisis and advance social equality
Capitalism is broken –
and so is Venture Capital
The blind drive for wealth has led to collateral damages like the climate crisis, biodiversity loss and social inequality. Venture Capital has not evolved since the 1960s. Stuck with the limitations of the 10-year fund-term, VCs are still seeking financial returns at the expense of the environment and society.
It’s time for a system upgrade: Impact Venture Capitalism
AENU drives systemic transformation in venture capital towards impact, accessibility and stakeholder-alignment. We are an evergreen impact technology fund aligned with Article 9 SFDR. We invest in early-stage climate-tech and social impact companies based in Europe.
For the VC industry to truly evolve, change must come from within.
- We founded tech-companies worth more than €2B.
- As VCs we invested more than €400M, with top-quartile returns.
- We co-founded Leaders For Climate Action and are ambassadors of Founder’s Pledge.
Our team is united by the ambition to drive systemic change in venture capital towards impact, accessibility and stakeholder-alignment.
