Fifty Years is an entrepreneur-run early stage venture fund based in San Francisco. We invest in companies that inspire. Specifically, we fund companies that, if successful, will be both massively profitable and make a serious dent in achieving one of the Sustainable Development Goals.
Some of the teams we've backed:
Small, low-cost telecommunications satellites to bring the internet to the entire world.
Commercialising cultured meat
to move humanity to a new,
better food system.
Using biology to convert low-cost sugar to high-value chemicals.
Fifty Years supports the Impact.tech community of techies who want to combine purpose & profit by building or working for #worldpositive companies.
Among other things, Impact.tech runs monthly events in San Francisco with the goal of exploring all the areas of business in which tech entrepreneurship can solve big social and environmental problems. The best place to talk to the Fifty Years team are these Impact.tech meetups!
