You are asked to develop a proposal that will be evaluated by a panel of judges acting as
representatives from a social venture capital group. These investors are looking for both
attractive returns and market-based solutions to address London’s environmental and
sustainability issues. They have a tolerance for higher risk investments and are interested in
game changing or market creating business proposals. They are interested in business built
around technically novel solutions, have experience in ventures that require or drive policy
change, and a history of making substantial investments. They are focused not only on business
proposals for London but also look for long term scale, reach, and global markets. The group has
substantial resources and does not typically look to the financial markets to provide capital rather
act as a source of private equity as companies in its investment portfolio mature.
There are a wide range of possibilities in developing your business/ entrepreneurship proposals;
including: new product design (for example for improved sustainability, local resource use,
recyclability, etc), new technologies that can reduce demands on the environment(even
Information Communications Technology), alternative organizational arrangements (such as
might reduce transportation or energy requirements and improve quality of life), or a new
service in building, mobility(transportation) or energy sectors with an impact on the
environment. Proposals should take into account the specific nature/issues in London such as
water/land availability and climate.
