SJF values the passion and dedication needed by entrepreneurs to convert brilliant ideas into extraordinary businesses. We help companies succeed by providing growth capital and assisting entrepreneurs with the demanding challenges they face.
Since establishing its first venture fund in 1999, SJF has provided venture financing for and assisted companies with innovative ideas in resource efficiency & sustainability and tech-enhanced services. Representative investment areas include asset recovery and reverse logistics, efficiency and infrastructure, sustainable agriculture and food safety, health and wellness, education, digital media, and technology-enhanced services. The firm’s principals work closely with entrepreneurs to develop and pursue growth strategies, recruit additional management, obtain debt and equity capital, and execute company acquisitions.
SJF believes companies can generate exceptional returns by creating disruptive solutions to some of the world’s greatest environmental and social problems. Moreover, many of the best and brightest entrepreneurs and management teams are looking to work in positive impact enterprises and partner with investors that share a similar vision.
“"When we looked for an equity investor for our company that shared our values and vision, SJF Ventures was the natural choice. They saw the promise early that B. B. Hobbs could help its agricultural customers produce more fruit and vegetables on less land with less water and fertilizer. They have worked on our board to help us achieve sustainable growth to new markets throughout the Southeast and to build a company that we can be proud of.””
