SE'nSE, a seed capital fund for sustainable and environmental start-ups.

To contribute to a more sustainable world by stimulating entrepreneurship. That is the aim of the Seed Equity & Sustainable Entrepreneurship (SE'nSE) Fund, a non-profit fund hosted by the Foundation for Future Generations. The SE'nSE Fund was created in 2016 by entrepreneur Pierre Mottet.

The Fund focuses on environmentally oriented start-ups with sustainable operations. Specifically, it provides seed capital in the form of a subordinated loan. The intent is to bridge the gap between the 3F stage (Family, Fools & Friends) on the one hand and the setup of a more permanent financing structure on the other.

On top of the financial support, the Fund offers entrepreneurs the opportunity to fine-tune their projects based on the constructive feedback of the jury, composed of experts, impact investors and entrepreneurs. Furthermore, it offers visibility and access to an extensive network of impact-oriented organisations and individuals. Finally, for young and sustainable enterprises, the SE’nSE Fund can be used as a label, to convince other investors of your potential positive environmental impact as well as the capacity of the team.

Thanks to the support of:
