Carbon Equity presents our Meet the Manager series with Tom Rand, Cofounder and Managing Partner at ArcTern Ventures — one of the private equity funds with our Decarbonization Fund I.

This webinar is your chance to directly ask a leading Fund Manager your climate investing questions and gain his perspective on:

📈 What is Climate Capitalism?

💡 Why is now a good time to invest in climate tech companies?

📉 What role does private equity play in decarbonizing our economy?

⚡️ What is ArcTern’s unique investment thesis (and what companies have you invested in)?

Tom’s first book Kick the Fossil Fuel Habit (2010) won the 2011 Whitepine Non-Fiction award; his second - Waking the Frog - became a bestseller in 2014; and his third - Climate Capitalism: Economic Solutions for a Planet in Crisis was published early 2020. Tom holds a BSc in electrical engineering (U of Waterloo), an MSc in philosophy of science (University of London and LSE) and an MA and PhD in philosophy (U of Toronto), is an Action Canada Fellow, and has been a member of a number of federal and provincial advisory boards.

Any information presented on this website does not constitute, and under no circumstances shall this information be deemed or construed to be a prospectus, an offer to sell, or the solicitation of an offer to buy or subscribe for an interest in the feeder funds or fund of funds of Carbon Equity B.V. “Funds”, unless clearly indicated otherwise. 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.
