HOW WE STARTED

Image

Where challenges ...

Climate change is the biggest threat currently facing our world. But what if we had the tools to drive lasting, sustainable change?

Innovation is key to addressing the biggest challenges in our societies, but all too often, we see technology compromised or stalled due to a lack of financial support. Even with sufficient investment capital available in the world, there is a shortage of financing for this type of innovation – and regular failures in the market for sustainable technologies mean there is a mismatch between demand and the supply of capital. That’s where we come in. That’s where we come in.

... meet solutions

We envision a world where financing is no longer a barrier to driving social and environmental changes, but an accelerator.

The founders of Polestar Capital were driven by one mission: to bridge the financing gap for impact. After spotting the market failures in the field of sustainable investments and social housing, they set up Polestar Capital, to ensure that every investment is made with impact in mind.
