Louisa Cilenti and Anjali Bakhru are the co-founders of pH3 Capital. We each have over 25 years’ experience in traditional business, academic and legal environments and, between us, experience of running start-ups as well as investing in others, commercialising innovation in clean tech as well as scaling new business models, and a PhD in strategy focused on new markets.
We’re Different -Just Like You
pH3 represents a new chapter in our professional lives. We are motivated by the challenge of building better businesses in the face of climate and social change. Our gender, sexuality and ethnicity have also impacted how we have experienced the world of business and how we work with others. We will draw on this to positively influence how we work with founders and management teams from a range of different backgrounds, reinforcing our ethos to support sustainability, inclusivity and empowerment in all of the organisations we work with.
We help start-ups and SMEs move from fearing the future to becoming sustainable engines of change in their communities.
Our vision is for purpose-led entrepreneurs to drive the new economy, encouraging other companies to do the right thing or be left behind.
We are committed to sustainable change and progress for business and society.
We aim to empower all voices within a business and its wider local community to ensure business and society work together in harmony.
Inclusion and diversity are essential to fostering the innovation and creativity needed in the new business landscape.
Openness is a first step to making a difference.

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.

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.

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