A nation of innovative opportunities
With its new base in the Netherlands' capital, the company aims to invest further in Dutch and European companies. GreenSoil Investments is focused on investing in companies that create value by enabling smart and efficient resource utilisation (energy, electricity, water, land) in the agriculture, food and real estate sectors. In an interview with Dutch business newspaper Het Financieele Dagblad
(in Dutch, paywall), Gideon Soesman, co-founder of GreenSoil Investments, comments: “There is a lot of innovation in our field happening here.” The company was founded four years ago and now manages approximately €32 million. Besides operating offices in Tel Aviv and Amsterdam, GreenSoil Investments also has an office in Toronto, Canada.
GreenSoil joins more than 2,500 international companies that already do business in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area. The region is a major asset management centre and is home to APG, one of the world’s largest pension funds. The area is also a fantastic base from which to invest in green tech. In 2014, the European Investment Bank set up shop in Amsterdam, anticipating that there will be many promising projects in the Netherlands, for example, through project finance support for strategic infrastructure and renewable energy. This provides organisations like GreenSoil Investments a very lucrative business foundation from which to increase their European market share.
