Strategy with Impact

At pH3 Capital, we work with you to develop your strategy to meet your growth aspirations while leaving a positive impact on the planet.

Our name pH3 Capital takes its inspiration from the balance needed between people, planet and profit and the importance of human capital alongside financial capital to drive a sustainable approach to business. We believe that these factors need to be considered and integrated into the core of a business so that businesses can thrive profitably, create shared prosperity within the communities where they operate whilst also taking account of their impact on the environment.

Since my first meeting with pH3 it has been a non-stop exploration, open conversation and targeted support to help us on our journey to impact. I have been very impressed with the open, engaged and passionate support, the relaxed yet insightful advice and the ability to brainstorm together for greater clarity and final product. Couldn’t recommend them highly enough.

Alex Ross, Founder and Managing Director,

Anjali and Louisa were excellent in guiding us through a strategy development process to help us to position for incoming investment and growth in a rapidly accelerating market. They provide a unique mix of pragmatic and helpful insight backed up by many years of research and knowledge. Highly recommended as a go to for start up / scale up particularly in the energy transition space.

Chris Smith, Founder and Managing Director, Meld Energy Ltd

pH3 was very professional and sharp, and clearly did great research preparing for the review session.

Dasha Klyachko, CEO and Founder, Livlet

pH3 Capital‘s support on developing a FutureLearn course, Building a Sustainable Future with Technology, was invaluable. Louisa’s deep knowledge of sustainability in the context of today’s industrial complexities, as well as her grounding in approaches to social justice and equality, ensured that we developed a very high-quality offer

Dr. Charlotte Webb, UAL Creative Computing Institute

Working with Louisa and Anjali has been an incredible experience, their attention to detail is remarkable, they both went above and beyond to provide us with the advice and guidance to tailor our pitch deck and accompanying presentation to the highest standards. I was also very grateful in the way which they were able to deliver the "difficult to hear" feedback constructively yet with empathy and understanding. A highly professional yet very "human" service from two industry leaders, I would strongly recommend their services to others, so much so that we are sending all of our portfolio companies in their direction as part of a long term working partnership.
