2. Scope.

Longtermism is a principal stance which gives priority to improving the long-term future. It is an important concept in effective altruism and serves as a primary motivation for efforts to reduce existential risks to humanity. From Wikipedia.

Industries and geos.

TenNine VC is investing in planet positive companies solving global issues and benefitting the Earth and society.


We work on profitably solving systemic societal and environmental challenges across industries, and back highly consequential hardware and software concepts with large obtainable markets, preserving the good and building the better.

We centre around two portfolios: Earth and Society. 

TenNine Earth portfolio supports preservation, reconciliation and regeneration of our planet’s elements, water, air, soil and the nature on it.

Healthy Earth is not a wish or a temporary hype. Climate issues and pollution are urgent, important, expensive, and with increasingly severe consequences for all life which we know, human included. Examples of Earth concepts strike through Climate tech and Cleantech industries:
  • Clean water.
  • Circularity, footprint and waste.
  • Clean energy.
  • Air quality and pollution.
  • Built environment.
  • Regenerative agriculture.
TenNine Society portfolio builds a sustainable, prosperous future of work, consumption and mobility, through technology. Solutions we support span across:
  • Meaningful blockchain – infrastructure and utility.
  • Hybrid intelligence and neurotech.
  • Future of work and education.
  • Longevity and quality of life ‚Äď mentis et corporis.
  • Sustainable foods.
  • Mobility 20X0.

We invest in regulated markets which we know well: 

  • Europe.
  • UK.
  • North America.
  • Australia.

Leveraging the insight and diversity of our Angel Syndicate membership, we build centres of expertise across the range of societal topics.

We are polymath by skill, and altruists by will. We gather for sourcing, diligence and industry analyses, invest and then help develop the companies we back. 

Stage and cheque.

We invest in traction-validated and revenue-generating concepts in Seed and A Series. We will occasionally venture into Pre-Seed and B stages.

Our ticket sizes:

  • Up to $100k from our internal rounds, 
  • Up to $500k from our syndication rounds, when we invite our TenNine Syndicate members to co-invest. 

We invest as one SPV. TenNine VC arranges all related administration. 


We will double down on winning concepts and follow our best Founders all the way to IPO. 


We join leading global funds for co-investments.

100 and 100.

109 signifies the number of human lives we want to positively influence.

We back highly consequential companies with potential to meaningfully impact our Earth and Society and enable technological paradigm shifts which holistically improve how humanity produces, consumes and socialises.


We invest in propositions with potential to positively influence 100 million human lives through obtainable $100 million in revenues.


In addition to wiring capital, we aim to increase our ventures‚Äô growth prospects, together with strategic industry, regulatory and operational leaders, customers and co-investors in the network we build. TenNine Syndicate Angels join us with aligned mission and asset incentives, pulling together in the same direction and optimising for outsized outcomes for all.

Founders we like.

We look for trailblazers, brave visionaries who uncover and craft new paradigms and market-universes that matter. 


Our founders are creative, optimistic, empathic, powerful. Simplifying principles, reimagining methods and scaling up propositions of fundamental societal relevance. The wonderful inventors of a collectively healthy, sustainable, joyous, progressive future. Brilliant minds with luminous energy, who will inspire the betterment of tomorrow.



Our markets are big, our teams are unique, our trends are steep. Our intentions are loud, our grit is strong, our dreams are wild. We are mannered dissenters, the elegant hustlers, the first principle thinkers, the daring nerds, the confident teamsters, the social engineers. We don’t pretend. We take along. The adventurous synergists, those called LEADers.


If you are working on a paradigm shifting, world improving idea with a true outsized return outlook, in a team which is placed like no other to persevere and win, we will probably be enthusiastic to meet.
