A panel of funders and a composter discuss options: Michael Castellarin, Clairvest Group: we will discuss how private equity can partner with entrepreneurial management teams to accelerate their growth and achieve their aggressive strategies by providing patient capital as well as complimentary skills, expertise and experience. Hannah Friedman, Closed Loop Partners: We are in a transition from our linear “make, take, waste” economy to a circular economy that recaptures value of the materials, keeping them in play and out of landfill. As states develop landfill diversion mandates and as residents and restaurants wake up to the climate impact of their food waste, expanding composting infrastructure is critical. This expansion requires capital and successful business models to scale. Closed Loop Partners is investing behind this transition and invests across material innovation, new packaging formats, collection and logistics, industrial composting companies and distributed anaerobic digestion solutions. Chip Homer, Honey Comb Credit: Honeycomb Credit is a loan crowdfunding platform that allows small business owners to borrow directly from their community and superfans. We believe in a financial circular economy where your community and consumers have the ability to participate in your growth. Our mission is to unlock growth opportunities for small businesses to build vibrant financially empowered communities. Gary Nihart, Atlas Organics: Developing infrastructure is one of the greatest needs of the composting industry in the present day. With increased implementation in organic diversion legislation and corporate responsibility on the increase it is more important than ever for our industry to rise to the occasion, however, one prevalent issue often exist; How do we fund new infrastructure? It is important that our industry looks into the appropriate funding solutions for every size and stage of business whether it be angel capital, alternative debt, or private equity. Many unique combinations of capital are now available in the market place with ESG and impact investing at an all time high. There are numerous ways to structure capital from early to late stage growth which can be explored.
