Biography

Unilever Ventures has a geographic emphasis on the USA and Europe and investment opportunities should be from businesses with a strong technology basis. We are interested in first outside round, follow-on, and buy-on opportunities. UTV expects, but does not require, most submissions to come from companies with a small number of employees (<100), and a pre-money valuation below $100m.

We are interested in opportunities in Healthcare, Clean tech, Water, Media, Environmental Services, Consumer Products & Services, Food & Drink, Home and Personal Care, Beauty, Cosmetics and Wellbeing Services, Weight Management and Fitness. Unilever Ventures can invest from €500K to €10m over the lifetime of any one particular investment.

Within the green sector we have a few investments in the healthy foods industry (Froosh, Allegra), new materials (Iota Nanosolutions), water purification (Voltea), and white biotechnology (Rahu Catalytics).
