About what we do
Alante is a venture capital fund investing in innovative companies that radically improve environmental or social sustainability within the textile & apparel industry.
Over the past decade, clothing prices have hit record lows while production continues to soar, resulting in an exponential increase in environmental & social costs. The challenges of managing opaque supply chains have allowed for forced labor, unsafe working conditions & toxic dumping to be outcomes of the clothes we wear. Companies are actively developing & integrating new solutions to make the lifecycle of apparel safer, cleaner, & more sustainable.
We intend to help them do it.
Brand & consumer demand, alongside supply chain pressures, are rapidly driving a shift towards sustainable apparel. Alante partners with brands to understand their sustainability bottlenecks & requirements, informing our process to invest in companies that provide viable solutions.
Investing across the lifecycle of apparel in innovations in production, distribution and waste recovery, we seek scalable solutions that leave lasting, positive impacts on people & the planet. We aim to increase ethical sourcing in the apparel industry by helping to bridge the gap between the newest innovations and the largest brands on the market. At Alante, we make it easier for brands of all sizes to produce and sell the ethical apparel that consumers are increasingly demanding.
