VERSO Fund will invest in mature, revenue-generating, game-changing companies in foodtech, edtech and cleantech. Our team will seek companies with the most positive impact on as many people around the world as possible.

VERSO Fund will invest a minimum of USD 100 million and up to USD 300 million with the support of international UHNW and Institutional Limited Partners. Our main objective is to deploy capital in innovative companies that have disrupted their sector with highly-valuable technology and smart business models. Our portfolio will ultimately back up only up to 10 companies with initial commitments in Late Stage and Pre-IPO and 1x to 2x follow-on capital for subsequent qualified financings leading to a successful exit.
