THE GAP

Institutional money is too expensive to risk on very early projects.

OPPORTUNITY

We can crowdfund risk-less money in a purpose-driven community of young people. 

WHAT WE DO

We run community rounds with mostly young people (18-35 years). This money comes without the limits that IRR and discount rates pose to VCs.

Thanks to validation through our scientific board and access to the market via our community of GenZ investors, we bring value that angels or incubators can’t.

We are a partner for VCs. They direct promising ideas, that are too early to invest, to us and we hand them back when they are ready.

Marabou is the first-line partner, that invests, validates, prepares and markets a project for the next funding round.

OUR STORY

Our co-founder Alexander Kraus has invented a solution that gives crops a 25 to 50% increase in yield. The climate impact is clear. Thanks to this solution, we can feed more people with less space and less co2.

We procured funding for this idea but it took Alexander four years. 4 years! In a time where first tipping points could happen in a decade, this delay hurts.

 

We saw the funding gap. We now build the solution.

About Marabou

It takes the genius of millions to fix our climate

We Marabous are a handful and we looking for the other 999.985 to make every contribution count.

WHY INVESTING IN CLIMATE INNOVATION?

We believe that neither denial nor protests will save our habitat. But innovation can. $500b per year is needed to in climate innovation.
Who inherits a future earth? It’s young people. But they have no say, no gain and no ownership in their own future. We want to change that.

WHY US AND YOU AND MARABOU

Millenials and Gen Z see greatness where others see obstacles, a trait needed to be climate optimists and act.

Innovation is mostly owned and financed by venture capital firms, they have the money, they take the risk, they gain the profits.

We want to create a community of young people that becomes a crowd of smart investors into climate innovation.
