Build solutions together
Holocene is an early-stage climate tech investor across energy, e-mobility, food & ag in Southern and Eastern Africa.
We not only invest financial capital but also roll up our sleeves to own major business work streams, allowing technical founders to build the best product for their customers.
Even after climate tech businesses gain traction, they still face an uphill battle. Holocene serves as the expert consultant ensuring successful climate tech reaches maximum impact.
We’re focused 100% on climate- because it’s our passion, not because it’s a trend or where the money is flowing today.
We create a flywheel of talent, support and connections by investing, building and creating community, and we’ve proven our ability to do all three.
We build and invest in very early, pre-seed and seed stage companies when most investors say they are “not quite ready” for investment-which is why we invest financial and human capital to get you ready for the rest.
Global networks, local boots
Our team has unparalleled experience on the continent. We have helped build and operate dozens of companies across Africa, Asia, North America and Europe, which gives us boots on-the-ground experience bolstered by an extensive global perspective and network.
Any of our portfolio companies will tell you that your experience with us will be about you. Our approach is bespoke, active, and personally connected. We determine what your company needs, make a plan, then roll up our sleeves to build with you.
Positivity = possibility
We are approaching the climate problem from a positive, solutions and adventure-oriented standpoint. We solve problems best from a place of positivity and possibility- not fear and scarcity.
