Investing in a better world

Making the world a better place is a big responsibility and Inven Capital's investment strategy is focused on building a greener future. Three years ago they found the perfect partner to achieve this mission in Plug and Play.

The Plug and Play team of venture associates constantly infiltrates the global network of startups, and their extensive network of corporate partners commit to achieving a sustainable future. Tapping into Plug and Play's sustainability ecosystem, Inven Capital was able to boost its performance and engagement through various events, expos and introductions. They have met 500 startups in these three years, received exposure to 530 corporate partners, and were able to promote their portfolio startups within Plug and Play's global network.

Networking through events

In the three years working together, Inven Capital has gained access to multiple new channels for generating international exposure for their portfolio companies. Partnering with Plug and Play allowed Inven Capital to participate and engage in ecosystem events all around the world where they met corporations that shared their views and innovation objectives on energy, mobility, and agriculture tech with an overall aim towards decarbonization.

As a result, the primary goal of scaling their portfolio companies was successfully achieved and they continue scouting new opportunities and making meaningful connections in new markets.
