Renewal2 Featured in the Globe & Mail on "Investing for Change"

Renewal2 and one of its portfolio companies Alter Eco Americas were featured in the April 21st article "Investing for Change: A new capitalism, coloured green." Written by renowned business journalist, David Ebner, the article features Renewal Partners high impact investment work and the extension of this work with the launch of the Renewal2 investment fund, a fund that focuses on the green building, green consumer products and organic and natural foods sectors.

The article also presents the story of co-founders Mathieu Senard and Edouard Rollett of Alter Eco Americas, a San Francisco-based, nine-person firm selling fair-trade food products in 2,000 stores in the United States and 30 so far in Canada. Senard and Rollett discuss the value and significance of Renewal2's investment in Alter Eco and in other triple bottom line sectors that are underserved by the traditional venture capital community.

Renewal2's final close of its fund will take place on May 31, 2010. The fund has already raised over $20 million for its investment sectors and has 40 limited partners from Canada, U.S. and Europe.
