Blume Equity is a climate-tech growth equity firm investing into high-growth European companies addressing the climate emergency. There are compelling macro-tailwinds from the transition to a low-carbon economy and a significant opportunity at the growth stage in Europe, where there is a growth funding gap and significant earlier stage venture investment into climate tech that now needs scale-up support.
Established by three female co-founders, Blume combines top-class investing and sustainability experience in a fully integrated way. The founding team previously worked at BlackRock, Goldman Sachs, McKinsey and investment firms ECI Partners and Mid Europa Partners. Blume’s network of advisors include Sir Dave Lewis (former CEO of Tesco; Chairman of Haleon plc; NED Pepsico), Sam Gyimah (NED Goldman Sachs International; former UK MP), and Diane Holdorf (Senior Executive at the World Business Council for Sustainable Development).
Blume is raising a €200 million fund and is supported by institutional investors such as AP4, LGT Capital, Visa Foundation, and the European Investment Fund. There is a seeded portfolio of 5 assets, which include:
- Sensorfact, a provider of an IoT data solutions that enable European industrial SMEs to reduce energy usage.
