What will you be building?
Our Climate Investing Platform, which serves 2 main purposes:
Engage our customers
Investing is not a single act of transferring money. It is all about being involved in your portfolio companies’ progress and learning how they grow and create real world impact. The platform will update investors about:
New investments made into companies,
New funding rounds raised by companies,
The impact their investments are making,
Other portfolio-related news.
Private equity has been notoriously paper-based and inaccessible. We are streamlining that process to reduce servicing costs and inform our customers on a continuous basis. It allows us to serve customers that would otherwise not be viable (costly) to serve; plus, it will allow us to serve customers that we would otherwise not be able to reach:
Financial: the platform will facilitate capital calls (transferring money) and provide insights into the current value of the investments
Onboarding: the platform will need to facilitate a seamless onboarding (KYC/AML check) which is currently chopped into different steps
Admin: the platform will need to establish API connections with our external fund admin who will provide most financial data.
Opportunities: the platform will facilitate customers to discover new opportunities and reinvest their profit into more pioneering tech.

About Carbon Equity
We believe that everybody should have the ability to use their capital to halt climate change. We want to offer a new generation of investors the opportunity to have real climate impact with their capital. And make a decent return in the process. Only then can we unlock the power of the masses, make everyone a co-owner of this transition and send more capital to where it’s needed most.
At Carbon Equity, we believe that the best way to accelerate decarbonization with your money, is by investing in companies that are bringing innovative climate technologies to market. Like alternative proteins, zero-carbon cement, nuclear fusion and electric tractors.
Most of these companies are funded on the private market, via venture capital and growth equity funds. These funds have high barriers to entry, with minimum tickets in the millions. With Carbon Equity, we made it our mission to open up this world of climate private market investing.
Carbon Equity is building the leading climate investment platform for retail investors. A platform that makes private equity and venture capital accessible by removing traditional jargon, mechanics, and complexities. We enable people to pick their specialist team of investors (i.e. fund managers) to invest for them, so they can sit back, relax and enjoy how their capital is making a real climate impact.
We are a solidly funded company (€3M), allowing us to grow rapidly to accomplish our mission. We are currently a team of 15 and growing rapidly. 🚀

No part of this information or the fact that of its distribution should form the basis of, or be relied on in connection with, any contract or commitment or investment decision whatsoever.
The issue and distribution of any information on this website may be subject to statutory or other restrictions in certain jurisdictions. Carbon Equity B.V. requests that individuals taking possession of this information familiarise themselves with and comply with those restrictions. Carbon Equity B.V. rejects liability for any violation of any such restriction by anyone whomsoever, regardless of whether that individual is a potential investor. This website in itself does not entail any offer of any security or an invitation to make an offer to purchase any security to any individual in any jurisdiction where such is not permitted according to the applicable law and regulations.
The Funds of Carbon Equity B.V. will only be offered to potential investors at a later stage pursuant to fund documentation to be prepared and distributed by Carbon Equity B.V., through a dedicated account environment and clearly indicated as such. Any person should note that the Carbon Equity B.V. Funds will eventually exclusively be offered by Carbon Equity B.V. to potential investors in permitted jurisdictions who commit to an initial investment of at least EUR 100,000 or fall under other applicable exemptions. Carbon Equity B.V. will act as the Alternative Investment Fund Manager (AIFM) of the Funds and will benefit from the Dutch sub-threshold regime, pursuant to article 2:66a of the Dutch Financial Supervision Act (Wet op het financieel toezicht).
As such, the Carbon Equity B.V. will benefit from an exemption from the license requirement and ongoing requirements of the AIFMD. Moreover, no prospectus requirement applies in light of article 1(4)(d) of the Prospectus Regulation. Any Funds and Carbon Equity B.V. will therefore fall outside the scope of supervision of the Netherlands Authority for the Financial Markets (Autoriteit Financiële Markten, AFM) and the Dutch Central Bank (De Nederlandsche Bank, DNB)
Carbon Equity does not make investment recommendations and no communication, through this website or in any other medium should be construed as a recommendation for any security offered on or off this investment platform. Alternative investments in private placements, and private equity investments via feeder funds in particular, are speculative and involve a high degree of risk and those investors who cannot afford to lose their entire investment should not invest. Prospective investors should carefully consider the risk warnings and disclosures for the respective fund or investment vehicle set out therein. The value of an investment may go down as well as up and investors may not get back their money originally invested. Past performance is not necessarily a guide to future performance. An investment in a fund or investment vehicle is not the same as a deposit with a banking institution. Please refer to the respective fund documentation for details about potential risks, charges and expenses. Additionally, investors will typically receive illiquid and/or restricted membership interests that may be subject to holding period requirements and/or liquidity concerns. In the most sensible investment strategy for venture capital investing, venture capital should only be a part of your overall investment portfolio. Further, the venture capital portion of your portfolio may include a balanced portfolio of different venture capital funds. Investments in venture capital are highly illiquid and those investors who cannot hold an investment for the long term (at least 10 years) should not invest.
