On A Mission

A society that allocates resources purely on the basis of generating short-term profit is untenable. We are planting a stake in the ground to help divert capital towards purpose.

Mustard Seed is a principal investor in world-class early-stage businesses that generate compelling financial and societal returns. We do so in conjunction with our global member network of business luminaries, an FCA-authorized venture fund, and events at many of the world’s leading universities.

We believe solving the greatest of societal ills drives commercial success in the long run.  Be in touch to discuss the Impact Framework that drives our approach.
