Earthwatch at 50: Jon Moulton’s story

How does a Venture Capitalist find himself studying Climate Change at the edge of the Arctic?

This is where Jon Moulton found himself in 2009 after winning a trip via an Earthwatch Auction. Although Jon trained and worked as a Chartered Accountant he is really a scientist at heart, having taken a degree in Chemistry before this. This interest was reflected in the naming of his first Venture Capital Company – ‘Alchemy’.

From his experience on the Arctic project, Jon recalls “I enjoyed the scientific content and the opportunity to do this in such a spectacular place”.

Jon remains involved in helping to tackle environmental issues through investing in areas such as low carbon technology via his shareholdings in Greensphere Capital – an environmental private equity firm.

Jon is also happy to get hands on, and owns some forests and is a self-confessed dabbler in rewilding.
