How does a Venture Capitalist find himself studying climate change on 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 remains involved in helping to tackle environmental issues through investing in areas such as low carbon technology via his shareholdings in Greeensphere 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.
“I enjoyed the scientific content and the opportunity to do this in such a spectacular place”.
