At Seamans Capital Management, our mission is to provide more return with less risk through sustainability-focused investments. To meet the demands of a technologically-driven future and contribute to societal stability, we believe it is important to support investments that will provide strong financial returns while enabling environmental vitality.

In 2013, our macro research identified “early adapter opportunities” in the transition from a carbon-based era to a technology-based era; and so began our journey of investing, on a personal basis in clean tech. We consciously decided to fund, with our own resources, the growth of the firm, until there emerged a new stability of investment opportunities in what some are calling the Integral Era.
