A team of plant powered, animal-loving,
betterment obsessed investors.
Who the heck are you guys?
We're Hanfield, a group of investors who would really prefer it if our planet didn't die.
That's why we we're working towards a world where a juicy hamburger doesn't require 660 gallons of water to make, the grass is always greener, and a baby pig's only job is to sit around looking adorable.
Yay for other cool stuff!
Wait, so do you guys just invest in planet stuff?
Of course not!
We invest in absurdly ambitious startups in any sector - Space 🚀, B2B 💼, Robotics 🤖, MedTech and HealthTech 🦾🦿, Autonomous Vehicle Support 🚘🚛, and anything else that's really fu%!ng cool.
Meet the family
Plant powered & mighty
