Areas of Impact

Urban Renewal

As demographics shift and industries come and go, the economic needs of a city change.  Whether it’s a suburb looking to upzone to address housing shortage, rapidly growing cities looking to mitigate crippling traffic gridlock, or local governments looking to attract and incubate high growth industries, we like to invest in projects that redevelop land to its highest and best use.

Decentralized Finance

Across most emerging markets, the lack of foreign direct investment has meant a dependence on high transaction cost remittances as a primary source of capitalization for small business. DeFi offers transformational change in the ease and speed with which communities can access capital from a global pool of investors without traditional banking bottlenecks or local currency risk.

Solar Energy Production

Climate change is challenging local governments to build adaptive capabilities into city infrastructure to maintain high levels of service for citizens. We invest in the production and distribution of solar energy – as failover micro grids as well as primary power supply – as a key platform for supporting post-Covid urban revitalization.
