- A second close to conclude Greenbackers seed round is scheduled for May and now open to ESG driven investors and funds interested in having a stake in this UK EIS advance-assured business.
- Recognised as a leading fundraising firm for early-stage green and ocean technology ventures, Greenbackers is now scaling its operations to meet the funding needs of clean technologies around the world, which deliver societal and corporate Net Zero targets.
- Nearly 400 Venture Capital, Corporate and Impact Funds, seeking deals in the climate and cleantech arena, have joined Greenbackers program, a fintech enabled deal platform which showcases pre-screened deals in a secure, digital environment.

Greenbackers Managing Partner Robert Hokin commented “We do deals in the hottest investment sector on the planet. With the extra benefit of helping SAVE the planet. There are now billions in investment capital available, but SME founders continually struggle to access it. That’s not acceptable and Greenbackers is going to change this, with a streamlined program for putting the right funding into technology founders who can move the dial on decarbonising our world. We are connecting the clean technology leaders of the future with the funds who can help them and our team is hugely excited about this next chapter in Greenbackers growth”.
