As Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Planet First Partners, Frédéric strives to create opportunities for his team and the companies they invest in, their managers and partners.
Planet First is an evergreen investment platform. The core challenges of the planet today are sustainability and nutrition. The EU leads the world not only in adoption of clear and mandated sustainability goals but also in enforcement of green regulations for all industries. This has created a strong demand for technologies that are emerging from their VC stage. Given this strongly positive investment environment, it is highly likely that certain European technologies will scale and solve common global problems. The first investments of Planet First Partners are in Sunfire (www.sunfire.de) and Submer (www.submer.com) Sunfire brings renewables everywhere. Its electrolyzers produce renewable hydrogen and syngas, a mixture of hydrogen and carbon monoxide, from renewable electricity, water steam and captured CO2. Submer enabled next-generation cooling and automation for data & energy-intense environments by integrating its pristine, highly-efficient & sustainable technologies.
