Impact Investment Management firm Triodos Investment Management announced today that it has appointed Isabelle Laurencin as Fund Manager of Triodos Organic Growth Fund. The fund invests in the transition towards ecologically and socially resilient food and agriculture systems, providing long-term mission-aligned private equity to privately owned European organic and sustainable food businesses that meet the increasing demand for sustainably produced food.

Laurencin has been with Triodos IM for nearly two years, most recently as Head of Investments for the Organic Growth Fund, and she currently is a board member at five of the fund’s portfolio companies. Prior to joining Triodos IM, Laurencin served as Managing Director at venture capital firm Plug and Play Tech Center, a startup accelerator focused on sustainable and circular innovations within the fashion and apparel industry.

Laurencin said:

“The momentum is building for the transition towards sustainable food systems. With its track-record and expertise, Triodos Organic Growth Fund is well equipped to support the European frontrunners in this rapidly evolving space. I’m excited to continue to contribute to this much-needed transition in my new role as Fund Manager of the fund.”
