A few days ago, I posted a story about a fund that will target green building technologies. I said it began with an N, but didn't have the complete name because I lost the piece of paper I wrote it on.
The fund turns out to be part of Navitas Capital, the investment arm of the Zeeman family. Jan Zeeman founded a successful chain of textile outlets and now wants to invest in sustainable technologies, particularly green building technologies. Navitas comes out of the Netherlands, but Travis Putnam out of Los Angeles is the managing partner.
"Entrepreneur/investor focused on sustainability in the built environment, in particular by accelerating the adoption of advanced green building practices," reads his LinkedIn profile. Navitas has started to make investments but not made a much of a public splash yet.
