Giaura B.V. – 50532758‐31122016

Skytree ® by Giaura B.V. is a spinout company of ESA (European Space Agency). Our CO2 re-capture process was originally developed for spacecraft to extract CO2 exhaled by astronauts on-board to enable longer space missions.

 

The technology took over 15 years to develop with a budget of over €70 million euros. It will be implemented in 2017 on the International Space Station.

 

We are part of the emerging clean tech industry of Carbon Capture & Utilization, which is working towards a solution to get excess amounts of CO2 out of our atmosphere. This industry wants to tackle the biggest problem our planet is currently facing. Today, our technology enables us to re-use CO2 from the air instead of producing it in a carbon positive way to meet the demand of personal and industrial applications.

 

It is our main mission ‘to establish our CO2 technology in everyday life’. By doing so Skytree® will achieve that CO2 is not only perceived as a waste-stream anymore but as a profitable, sustainable resource.  Our core competency is the transfer of our technology into products and applications on the small to medium scale. On the basis of licensing agreements we bring them to market by establishing partnerships with leading companies within respective industries. Through business analysis we have validated more than 50 different applications in which our technology could be implemented.

 

Negative Emissions Technologies like ours have the capability of extracting CO2 directly from our air around us and therefore they could help to reduce the impact of global warming on our planet.  Our long-term goal with our technology is to extract large volumes of CO2 out of our atmosphere for re-use as bio-fuel since this also aligns with Skytree’s ® vision, which is ‘to create a carbon-neutral economy for our planet’.Negative Emissions Technologies like ours have the capability of extracting CO2 directly from our air around us and therefore they could help to reduce the impact of global warming on our planet.  Our long-term goal with our technology is to extract large volumes of CO2 out of our atmosphere for re-use as bio-fuel since this also aligns with Skytree’s ® vision, which is ‘to create a carbon-neutral economy for our planet’.

” With Leapfunder you get a great opportunity to build up a diversified portfolio of start-up investments, often investors can play an active role in developing the company “

” When I saw the Leapfunder proposition I thought straight-away: this is what start-ups need. I am an entrepreneur and wish this system had been available when I started my company. “

Veritas Capital, a private equity firm focused on technology-enabled companies, has held the final close of its first Credit Opportunities Fund.

The vehicle has pulled in $400m of aggregate committed capital.

Veritas previously secured $6.5bn for its Veritas Capital Fund VII and has also received around $1bn in support for its co-investment division. This has brought the firm’s total capital raised over the past 12 months to $8bn and its total assets under management to $20bn, it claims.

Credit Opportunities Fund will leverage the firm’s highly differentiated deal flow and access to sector insights to embrace the complexity of a maiden fund and “act with conviction and speed.”

The firm believes credit is the natural adjacency for Veritas, due to it already having several credit investments under its belt in the technology and government sectors. It will also allow it to invest across the capital structure to offer tailored solutions.

Veritas Capital CEO and managing partner Ramzi Musallam said, “For over two decades, we have successfully invested in some of the leading, market-critical companies in technology and government across all seven of our private equity funds.

“We launched the Credit Opportunities Fund to expand on that strategy and take advantage of additional opportunities to leverage our strong sector knowledge and experience. The Fund will benefit significantly from our integrated platform and intellectual property, creating a differentiated financing partner with the ability to find highly-customized solutions for the companies in which we invest.”

The investment firm backs technology and technology-enabled solutions within the healthcare, national security, software, education, aerospace & defence, government services, communications, and energy industries.

Earlier in the year, Veritas agreed to buy the healthcare unit of IT and consulting business DXC Technology for $5bn in cash.
