THE FUTURE IS OURS TO CREATE. IT’S TIME TO BUILD!

“The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible. Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”

SNØ IS THE a16z FOR CLIMATE TECH

Our purpose is to explore, emerge and fund cutting edge technologies within climate tech amplified  by narratives through targeted distribution platforms engaging millions of people to adapt to novel applications that will unlock efficiency gains in existing sectors. Rapid adoption will occur for certain solutions via these powerful network effects.

 

Global challenges imply global market size. A hyperconnected world means the opportunities are immense.

“We are prototyping an Earth+ Future”

 

We believe accelerating economic growth is actually the single best strategy for the environment  in activating financial, environmental and social capital to create a blueprint for a new World.

Grounded in tech, amplified on specific distribution platforms and expressed in myriad storytelling forms, we provide the framework and narrative shifting our collective future from catastrophe and detail the proactive steps we can take for creating a (w)healthier Planet.

 

Our first fund Snøcap is a triple bottom line climate fund with two focus areas of investments:

1

TECHNOLOGY + INNOVATION

 

 

Our approach is rooted in three core principles. 

 

  • Eco-balanced Profitability – accounting for economy & ecology 
  • Technology-enabled Adaptability – speed & sustainability in a rapidly changing world
  • Minimum 10X Breakthroughs 

 

 

Snøcap seeks to support development and expansion of technology & innovation within Food and Agriculture, Wellbeing & Transformative Tech, Carbon Capture and Marketplaces, Supply-Chain Innovations, Waste and Recycling
Construction and Heavy Industry, Eco and Upcycled Materials

STORYTELLING + NARRATIVE DESIGN

 

Storytelling is our most powerful tool to influence behavioral change. If we can influence what people think, we can change how they behave. Leveraging technology and the power of storytelling will be expressed via media & special projects in the shape of films, games, apps, AR/VR and yet-to-be discovered storytelling formats to reach billions of people and promote a shared story of a protopian future.

THE PLAN – OPPORTUNITY EMERGES FROM CRISIS

But how are we solving the 2 degrees? 

 

With two clear steps. We are committed to identifying, capturing and extending this active market demand for regenerative, accessible, inclusive ecosystems of solutions vetted for their positive impact on both the economy and the environment. 

 

  • Creating market need by vetting and funding stories that accelerate behavioral change
  • Funding ‘Solutions‘ within climate tech 

 

Modern civilization is experiencing a series of crises from many angles, ranging from health to environmental to governmental and, in truth, existential. The pattern of unconscious overconsumption brought us to this breaking point and only a new pattern of conscious production will bring forward a new Earth+ future.

 

Snø is leading the path towards a new frontier along triple bottom line principles, where humans, our environment and economic returns are in balance with each other.

 

We are called to be architects of the future, not its victims. It’s time to build!
