KRF’s Founder, Kyle Fox, says, “SailGP’s commitment to innovation and sustainability is closely aligned with the K Energy Growth Equity Fund, which targets fast-growing, profitable, founder-led, technology-enabled companies and is dedicated to working closely with management teams and founders globally.”

SailGP is not only considered the world’s most exhilarating sailing championship but also leads eco-friendly practices to achieve the world’s most sustainable global sports and entertainment platform by working closely with partners and sponsors to achieve impact on and off the water. Emirates, one of the leading sponsors of SailGP, operated its first demonstration of a flight powered entirely by 100% Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF). The league will achieve this by using 100% renewable energy, including fuel cells, sustainable fuels, flexible solar, and wind turbine energy, and maximizing the footprint of renewable technologies.

The upcoming Dubai SailGP event on December 9th and 10th coincides with the UAE’s 2023 ‘Year of Sustainability,’ which is well aligned with K Energy’s commitment to achieving innovative solutions for energy, climate change, and other sustainability-related challenges. The Fund is focused on identifying value across the renewable sector and investing in small/midcap companies poised for strong, scalable growth with large-scale projects.

The Fund has forged strong collaborations with developers, operators, and engineers to realize global commercialization and scalability across the globe for its investments in energy, renewables, decarbonizing solutions, climate tech, and infrastructure projects. K Energy provides funding across the capital stack and leverages sector expertise across industries. It benefits from KRF Capital’s broader platform, which invests across Real Estate, Credit, Sports, Media, and Entertainment – building on a track record of over 300 completed transactions and over 50 successful exits.
