Supporting purpose-driven entrepreneurs solving systemic challenges to human and planetary health.

Nucleus Capital is a new micro VC supporting purpose-driven founders.
We profoundly believe that entrepreneurial innovation is necessary to tackle global threats to human and planetary health.

We partner with entrepreneurs at the nucleus of their journey, investing at the Pre-Seed & Seed stage. In doing so, we deeply respect the entrepreneurial process. We are most excited about teams that don’t hesitate to speak up and challenge our thinking.

Synthetic Biology

We have entered a new era of biology where it is possible to rewrite the underlying code of living organisms, creating countless opportunities to upgrade the world we live in.
We specifically seek applications in material
science and food.

Food Technology

Fueled by global population growth our current food system is at the brink of collapse. We seek technology solutions that help satisfy our protein demand, increase food security, reduce waste and digitize experiences.

Climate Technology

If we keep scaling up incumbent technologies and practices we will experience a devastating impact on planetary and human health on several dimensions. We see immense opportunity to invest in solutions that help slow down and reverse the effects of climate change.
