Impact through the whole process

In Katapult Ocean we are dependent on investing in the best startups to maximize our impact. By investing, connecting the startups to our network, inspire and inform them through our accelerator program, our portfolio companies are able to scale their solutions. By scaling the good solutions, we also create more impact.

It is important for our impact to pick the right startups and that is why we consider impact throughout the whole process when looking at new investment opportunities. From the very first time we look at a startup we analyze if the startup is within our target areas, what problem the startup is solving and what their impact is. It should also be possible to quantify the impact. The best way to get really good at measuring and managing the impact the startups have, is to start doing it when they are still an early stage company. We know that this can be difficult for a startup and that is why we focus on it in our accelerator program. As the startups become more mature, we ask them to measure and report their impact, because you need to know where you are to know where you are going.

Through Katapult Oceans Deep Blue Fund 1 our objective is to invest for measurable market returns and positive
environmental impacts within ocean domains. To achieve its objective the Fund will invest
in companies with business models which aim to solve climate and biodiversity
challenges, and/or provide sustainable sources of food, materials, and clean water.

Such opportunities operate within domains such as Ocean organics (seaweed, algae,
alternative proteins, organic materials), Energy systems (wind, solar, wave, tidal
propulsion systems, fuel types, storage, enabling technologies) and Circular resources
(ocean regeneration and biodiversity, clean water, and waste management).

The Fund has not designated a reference benchmark for the purpose of attaining the
sustainable investment objective since no relevant benchmark currently exists. The
sustainable investment objectives are considered to be attained through the Fund
investing according to its investment strategy and applying the sustainability indicators
(see ‘Read in Full’) to monitor the Funds’ performance.
