The Paliwoda Group Announces its Green Tech Fund to Expand Seed-Stage Investments in Startups that Promote More Environmentally-Friendly Approaches to Manufacturing, Retail, and Logistics
|October 27, 2011 New York City, NY The Paliwoda Group today announced its Green Tech Fund to provide seed-stage investments in young companies that promote more environmentally-friendly approaches to manufacturing, retail, and logistics.|
The Green Tech Fund fosters a new generation of innovative, enterprise-level sustainability solutions that lower business expenses amid rising costs for raw materials, labor and transportation. The fund also considers projects that integrate the best eco-friendly practices across the organization from design to manufacture to marketplace to recapture, recycle and reuse of material and projects that mobilize key constituents to scale sustainability efforts and promote healthy lifestyles.
"Our investment thesis draws heavily from insights gained from implementing sustainability solutions within our portfolio companies," said Ron Paliwoda, founder and President of The Paliwoda Group. "These efforts are helping to weather the current economic downturn by leveraging innovation in sustainable production to reduce costs, while furthering a brand's image among increasingly environmentally-minded customers."
The Green Tech Fund will tailor its investment to the unique requirements and value propositions offered by each selected project. Prototype-stage endeavors may also work closely with portfolio and affiliated companies of The Paliwoda Group to advance the development of their solution and demonstrate the business value offered.
Applications for the Green Tech Fund are now being accepted online at www.paliwoda.com/greentech. The most promising projects will be invited to meet with a member of the firm's Ventures investments team. Projects will be announced as they are selected for funding, unless they choose to remain operating in stealth mode.
