Hosted by David Nixon, Senior Investment Manager at Maven's North East office, this webinar covers a number of key points surrounding Investing in the Circular Economy.
The Circular Economy tackles climate change and other global challenges like biodiversity loss, waste, and pollution, by decoupling economic activity from the consumption of finite resources. With an increasing demand from investors across all asset classes for strong interconnectivity between profit and purpose, there has been a shift in attitude towards sustainable investment to support future growth.
David is joined by Jonny Catto, Managing Director and Co-Founder of iPac Innovations, a sustainable thermoformed packaging business based in region with facilities in Gateshead, Tyne and Wear and County Durham. Jonny discusses how the company has benefitted from Maven funding and how the business has been able to drive sustainable growth whilst maintaining a foothold in the Circular Economy.
iPac was backed with a £2.2 million investment from the Maven VCTs and the North East Development Capital Fund to help the business with its growth plans, expand its number of manufacturing lines, and significantly increase its headcount.
