About SHIFT Invest

We believe that impact and solid financial returns are mutually reinforcing factors, and not a trade-off.

SHIFT Invest is a venture capital fund that exclusively invests in innovative start-ups with a significant positive environmental impact potential. As impact investors, we take financial and impact risks that conventional investors are not able or prepared to take. 

We do this by investing across 4 verticals: Energy Transition, Smart Food & Agriculture, Green Industries, and Sustainable Mobility & Logistics. During our 13+ years of experience in impact investing, we have built a strong track record and a valuable network, which we use to accelerate our companies and bring back the balance between nature and society. We work with a diverse and experienced team committed to accelerating innovation by supporting the creation of great companies.

“As an intern at SHIFT, you will work in one of our 4 sector teams. This way, you will quickly learn to analyse and judge innovations within the Food & Agri value chain, for example, and by the end of your stay with us, you will know a lot about the dynamics in such a sector.”

– Florentine Fockema
