Leveraging each other’s expertise

“This partnership is all about utilizing the two entity’s capabilities,” said Dirk Fransaer, CEO a.i. of LIST. “On one hand, IVC will bring in its expertise in deal-making and understanding of investor activities, while the advisor bureau will support LIST by offering insights into investor activities and facilitating communication between scientists, detailing venture investment preferences beyond technology.” Additionally, they will provide valuable insights into specific spin-off deals.

“On the other hand, LIST will provide scientific expertise, insights, and evaluations related to the technological aspects of investment opportunities we assess in the field of decarbonization,” added Quentin Dupraz, Principal of IVC . The Institute will also provide access to laboratories, equipment, and methodologies tailored to address specific requirements.

The complementary nature of the two partners is evident, and it should lead to promising results in accelerating decarbonisation and addressing the climate challenges we face.
