Investment thesis

Fund I invests in seed-stage technology companies who are already seeing commercial traction, nearing $1M in annual sales, and have IP that improves efficiencies and/or mitigates risks relating to water or wastewater in agriculture, aquaculture, buildings, climate, conservation, financial services, industry, power generation, and/or utilities.

 

Technology focus

Innovations in Chemistry, Data Science, Diagnostics, Computer Engineering, Information & Communication Technology (ICT), Materials Science, Metagenomics, Microbiology, and Process Engineering.

What problems are these companies solving?

While their innovations address some aspect of water or wastewater, ultimately their customers face inefficiencies and risks relating to Climate Adaptation, Environmental Protection, and/or Public Health & Safety. 

How is the ESG framework utilized?

Measure impact by applying the ESG framework to score portfolio companies on how their innovation supports their customers’ ESG efforts. 

 

How do we invest? 

We typically cut more than one check to Fund I companies over a period of 2-3 years as our confidence in the founder grows.

 

Why Mazarine

Mazarine recognizes that early-stage companies need more than simply financial capital (money).  In the early days of a company, we strongly believe that getting the right strategy and team in place (including board) are precursors to money.
