Carl Walton joins Katapult
We are ecstatic to add a talented Investment Manager to the Katapult Team, Carl Walton! Carl brings with him vast experience in analyzing global Industrials and Consumer Staples companies, and will use his in-depth knowledge at Katapult Climate to refocus on sustainability, climate and impact in these areas.
Carl credits the importance and urgency of sustainability issues for leading him to Katapult, “I see that the [climate] solution needs to be far more than individual habit changing and philanthropy – there is a tremendous demand for global impact investment. Katapult has led this field for 5 years and identified that the agility, innovation and rapid scaling potential of tech start-ups is key to sustainability. Most importantly, through the mutual success of investors and start-ups, Katapult helps make a real impact on humanity and the planet.”
