Symbiotic Projects was founded by an investor and conservationist who wants to supercharge the growth of startups and funds that are working on nature-based solutions.
I have always been fascinated by nature so when I had the opportunity to travel to the Amazon, I said yes without hesitation. While there, I witnessed first-hand the scale of deforestation and land conversion and it devastated me. I left that trip feeling a deep connection to nature and a desire to protect it from human destruction.
It didn’t take long for me to realize that, although founders appreciated my angel checks, I was able to provide more value to them when I leveraged my skills, knowledge, and network to boost their fundraises. After independently working with many founders, I started my own investment and advisory practice (Symbiotic Projects) so that I could work full-time on supercharging the growth of NBS startups and climate funds through fundraising support, investor and partner sourcing, and business mentoring.
We know what investors want. We leverage that to give our clients what they need.
This is where we do the bulk of our work. We offer our skills, services, and expertise on a project-by-project basis to help accelerate fundraises and boost the growth of mission aligned companies.
Additionally, we are a value-add Limited Partner in several climate funds. We actively work to support fund operations through introductions to founders and other investors.
Occasionally, we also write checks as an angel investor. We always strive to be a high value-add partner to our portfolio companies, offering our help whenever we can.
We use a regenerative business model to support our commitment to nature.
Pricing Tailored by Project
We offer flexible pricing options tailored to each project and client's needs. This includes project-based fees, hourly rates, or a percentage of successfully raised funds. To maintain compliance, we collaborate with regulated entities for commission-based work. We prioritize discussing and agreeing upon the pricing structure before commencing any new project.
Profits are Reinvested
We reinvest profits as equity, prioritizing the most impactful investments. We differentiate our fundraising services from personal investments, ensuring transparency and clarity. With this unique regenerative business model, we ensure that we are doing everything we can to protect nature and support the growth of our portfolio companies.
