Circularity Capital closes £60 million fund for European circular economy ventures



ImpactAlpha, January 9 – Edinburgh-based private equity firm Circularity Capital invests in growth-stage European businesses supporting the circular economy. It has secured £60 million ($76.8 million) in funding for its first venture fund.

Circularity Capital, which launched in 2015, invests in companies like Winnow, a data firm that supports the reduction of food waste by helping chefs in the hospitality industry better manage inventory, and Grover, that strives to reduce electronic waste by offering a subscription service for consumers and large companies on devices like laptops, smartphones, and cameras. The fund, called Circularity European Growth Fund I, targets deals in the £1 to £5 million ($1.3 to $6.4 million) range.

The firm launched and reached a first close for its debut fund in March 2017. With its final close, the fund’s investor roster includes AXA Investment Managers, BNP Paribas Fortis, Henkel, Philips, as well as family offices.
