Postcode Lotteries Green Challenge Fund

During the Postcode Lotteries Green Challenge in 2016, the Postcode Lotteries Green Challenge Fund was launched. This fund invests in promising winners and (former) finalists of the Postcode Lotteries Green Challenge, in order for them to grow into successful companies that can really make a difference in the world. After the market entry additional capital is often needed to be able to scale up. The current venture capital available in the market focuses mainly on companies that are already beyond the start-up phase, simply because it is too high-risk for many investors.

The DOEN Foundation, also a supporter of the winners of the Postcode Lotteries Green Challenge, manages the fund. In addition to financial support, the DOEN Foundation also provides substantive added value by connecting the right parties in its network and therefore assisting these companies further.
