About Us

The Specialist Role of Green Angel Syndicate

Widespread systemic change requires a range of innovations. It is a practical problem. Multiple small inventions are needed to make incremental changes at global scale. This will build up to entire systemic change; tiny inventions with huge potential. These all require innovation, so that our human needs are still met, but they are met by using a completely different approach.

Green Angel Syndicate specialises in this new approach needed to fight Climate Change. We search out, assess and select the innovations that will make a difference, and then invest in them to enable their development. Currently only Green Angel Syndicate, among UK angel investment syndicates, has the specialist knowledge to deliver the results we need.
