About Method Capital
Developed in Partnership
We opened our doors to Cleantech innovators in a series of confidential one to one sessions. They identified a massive latent demand for a new funding method, a concept where a service model replaced a capital model and the adopter paid against agreed performance deliverables. Adopters get what they need: energy saved, energy stored, wastewater treated, human capital displaced, efficiency generated without the hassle and complications of asset purchasing.
The key stakeholders play their individual parts:
- Method Capital acquires the product technology from the Cleantech company as a capital sale
- The Cleantech company owns all the risk associated with performance & technical benefit delivery
- The benefit is paid for (as an operating expense) by the adopter to Method Capital which owns the resource efficient asset
- The adopter benefits from faster and risk-free access to the product technology on a 3-10 year primary service contract
Why Method Capital
Selecting and qualifying disruptive Cleantech opportunities is one of the key differentiators of Method Capital. We do not profile in the same way an equity investor (Venture or PE Firm) would for investment targets. There is a level of elegance to the simplicity of our model but it should not be confused with something that is easily copied or replicated. Our focus is on Cleantech firms that have only a few validated pilots (disruption proven at a modest scale) and are considering a funding round for production & delivery capacity scale up. Customers are willing but the capital budget process is too unwieldy so Method Capital solves the financing problem and grows its business from ‘win’ outcomes .
