ERIH Ventures evaluates innovative clean technologies, corporate spin-offs and products with shorter development cycles and invests across multiple areas.
The ERIH Ventures' Difference
Hands-on Approach to Company Building
ERIH Ventures is driven by the “old-fashioned” VC style of working closely with portfolio companies. Going beyond passive board roles, ERIH Ventures is unusually hands-on when starting companies, assuming short-term operating roles and proactively providing guidance throughout a portfolio company’s life. ERIH Ventures' input to operating plans, strategy and management team development has a major impact on creating and realizing shareholder value.
Team, Network, Extensive Operational Experience
ERIH Ventures' professionals have spent their careers in the clean technologies, often working together over many years while helping to create shareholder value. Team members draw upon over a half century of combined operational experience as CEOs and other leadership roles at technology companies. This positions ERIH Ventures as an “entrepreneur-friendly” firm and validates our taking an active role when mentoring entrepreneurs. ERIH Ventures has proven ability to identify the best scientists in leading-edge fields, work with well-established entrepreneurs, and co-invest with value-added venture capitalists and partners at major cleantech companies.
Capital Efficiency & Shortened Time to Realization
ERIH Ventures' investments are expected to generate attractive returns within three to five years driven by validated development-stage assets and by technologies with less regulated commercialization paths. ERIH Ventures works to maximize equity returns by sourcing non-equity capital and by creating earlier exit opportunities. This may involve accessing capital from governmental agencies, building strategic alliances with large life science companies or acquiring later-stage products.
Focus on Low Loss Rate
We strive to maximize partner returns for all portfolio companies, unlike many venture capitalists that focus on their best investments. ERIH Ventures redefines business strategy, restructures management teams and accesses additional assets to enhance individual company performance and overall fund returns. ERIH Ventures' low loss rates demonstrate our strategy’s inherent value and have had a very positive impact on overall returns.
Climate Protection Partnership Strategy
ERIH Ventures believes that the transition to a low carbon sustainable economy is steadily progressing. Resource scarcity, volatile commodity prices, extreme weather events, climate change and an unprecedented rise in numbers of the global middle class, means that sustainability and solutions which drive productivity—enabling us to do more with less—are more urgent than ever. We believe that sustainability is an imperative which extends across the whole economic system thereby creating significant investment opportunities.
Thus ERIH Ventures’ strategy seeks to invest in businesses that create value by enhancing resource productivity while reducing pollution, waste and emissions in a partnership with myclimate Turkiye.
