Enjoy dinner drinks and a chance to meet…

Katya Akulinicheva is Chief Investment Officer at SYSTEMIQ. SYSTEMIQ aim to support disruptive early-stage technology ventures with the potential to transform systems in the circular economy, energy and land use sectors.

What SYSTEMIQ typically invest in…

SYSTEMIQ support asset-light models (SaaS, platforms, marketplaces and tools) and targeted IP-driven asset-light hardware innovation with significant scale potential. Their sweet spot is $1-2m of initial investment in Seed/Series A rounds. SYSTEMIQ will act as an active minority investor by deploying a combination of capital and talent to 'de-risk' the companies they invest in, accelerate their commercialisation and position them for further fundraising and greater scale.

Their Investment Portfolio Includes…

This is a great time to chat! SYSTEMIQ raised $20m earlier this year and are looking to double that in the not too distant future. The objective is to deploy that capital over the next three years into innovative early stage ventures with system change potential in their focus areas. As they only raised funds this year, they are looking to close their first investment in the next few months.

This dinner is perfect for…

Founders and CEO's in CleanTech or mission driven businesses.
