We see our mission of backing European talents into US and Global successes as of strong impact by design. Europe is indeed home to talented and driven pool of top engineers and creative entrepreneurs, but they too often miss the familiarity needed with the US to scale globally.
Additionally, we believe the Tech segments & models we invest in present huge opportunities to serve ESG global concerns, therefore investing in founders that care about their impact is one of our 5 core investment criteria. We have integrated environmental, social and governance best practices in numerous aspects of our own organization, including our proprietary sourcing platform.
Bringing support on three ESG pillars
Our latest fund RRW II Growth is classified under Article 8 of SFDR regulation, as a financial product that promotes, among other things, environmental or social characteristics. We decided to focus our efforts on three ESG subjects:
- Ethical Technology
- People Well-being
- Carbon Reduction
We are convinced that those challenges fully align with our performance as a leading EU to US Tech investor; and this is our differentiated narrow portfolio strategy and operating DNA that allows us to act as dedicated and impactful partners on those three ESG pillars.
Shareholder engagement and voting rights policy
We are convinced that those challenges fully align with our performance as a leading EU to US Tech investor and we have already built significant tools and networks around those focus themes to support our portfolio companies.
Our differentiated narrow portfolio strategy and operating DNA allows us to act as dedicated and impactful partners on those three ESG pillars.
