Pelican Founders supports founders who pair positive social and environmental impact with profit. We believe the current investment model needs mending, and founders need more sympathetic and patient capital. We help find funding and expertise; to grow both the business and the environmental and social impact.
We focus on Series A and B fund raises within food, agriculture, circular economies and oceans. For investors, we work with best-in-class founders and the most active impact investors in the UK and globally.

Drawing on our 16 years of experience, we have a leading network of the most active impact investors: across impact VC, PE, Wealth/Asset Managers, Endowments, Foundations, Family Offices and UHNWs, who we carefully match our founders with and vice versa.
We want to help our founders grow and know that if they have a passion to make a difference, they’ll go a lot further if their investors share that passion.
We are a voice for positive impact. And we’re in constant conversation with the people needed to amplify our founders’ causes.
Pelican Founders is an ecosystem for founders and investors within positive impact to find each other. We’ve built a community of forward-thinkers, including founders and investors to policymakers and think tanks, World no 1 surfers, leading environmentalists and university deans.
