Christopher founded Pelican Ag, the UK’s first venture firm focused on the transition to sustainable food systems. Investing farm to fork; driving regenerative agriculture, shorter supply chains and sustainable consumer habits. He’s on a crusade to show the investment community that sustainable food and regenerative farming can and should be central to their approach. He grew Pelican Founders into a leading impact advisory firm, scaling and advising over 30 sustainable food and farming companies who received over £300m in subsequent funding. Prior to this he spent 16 years in investment at Blackrock, Jupiter and CCAM; where he latterly raised $1.8bn for 5 funds.
