‘Don’t Look Up’ star backs new multi-million dollar circular investment fund

‘Have an innovation ready to supercharge?’ is the big question Regeneration.VC is asking innovators worldwide. And if your company is pioneering circular solutions that can tackle the climate emergency then you should seriously think about giving Leonardo Di Caprio and the team at Regeneration.VC a call.

The fund, which recently brought down the gavel on its first $45 million pot, aims to harness the epoch-making changes that can be triggered by people power to inspire a paradigm shift in the consumer industries, so its future is one defined by ‘circular and regenerative principles’.

William McDonough, sometimes referred to as the ‘father of the circular economy’, is an advisor at Regeneration.VC, which now exists to turn the wheels of the circular technoshpere – where technical materials are returned to productive use to eliminate waste; and the regernative biosphere – with its focus on generating new biological growth by returning ‘biological resources to living ecosystems’.

“We need forward-thinking approaches that perform measurably better for our planet. It’s time for people to feel good about their purchases and for businesses to meet that challenge,” Leonardo DiCaprio, who is a strategic advisor with the fund, says on the Regeneration.VC website.

The team says it invests in three innovation themes: design, use, and reuse, with the target audience being Seed Round and Series A companies. And the fund is ‘actively looking for investment opprtunities’.

So the question is, do you have an innovation ready to supercharge?
