Investing in a sustainable future


Amsterdam based venture capital and growth financing

A Sustainable Future

The earth’s natural resources are finite. We believe that the solutions to these serious problems our generation is facing are within the scope of business driven innovation. Therefore, we invest in companies that innovate their way into a sustainable future.

Energy and Mobility

Ponooc’s venture capital fund provides growth capital to start-ups and scale-ups with a focus on sustainable energy or mobility solutions. We have a track record when it comes to energy related investments and an extensive network which we can leverage in the mobility industry. Exceptional opportunities which do not fit with these themes may be considered.

A Proactive Shareholder

Ponooc aims to be a proactive shareholder. Our objective is to obtain a relevant minority stake. We commit to stay aboard as long as we continue to add value to the venture. We believe our knowledge, network, and investment can make a difference, both for the venture and in the energy transition.
