Investment Focus on Ventures in Colorado
Aravaipa focuses on companies that create disruptive technology with a global environmental impact. Impact Technology areas include transportation efficiency, building efficiency, water technologies, and smart agriculture. Each of these disruptive Impact Technologies has global impact potential through the internationalization uniquely available to technology plays.
IMPACT + FINANCIAL RETURN
Aravaipa is the rare fund that combines the values of Impact Investing with the excitement, financial potential and global impact of early-stage Technology. Aravaipa Investors can expect both the high financial returns of technology investments and the high social and environmental impact of Impact Investing.
Financial Return: Aravaipa invests in companies that are developing, manufacturing, and bringing to market advanced technologies. Like all good technology companies, these companies are expected to scale rapidly, profitably and globally – as opposed to most other types of businesses that have considerable geographic, capital or human barriers to profitable growth.
Environmental Impact: each of the Technologies we invest in will contribute to a more efficient use of the world’s limited resources – providing a profound environmental impact. Uniquely the Environmental Impact of Aravaipa is at the core of its products, ensuring long term Impact compliance.
Social Impact: Aravaipa “Impacts Globally, but Acts Locally.” Aravaipa companies not only create high quality jobs, train employees and work with local suppliers, but also locate factories in low-income areas of the State and work with community development leaders.
