Our Values

Sustainability

People, Planet and Profit sits at the heart of what we do. If you feel the same, we would like to hear more.

Innovation

Energy follows intention. Be the change that you want to see in the world. Walk the walk. However you phrase it, we believe in positive change.

Empathy

We have first-hand experience of the highs and lows that come with ambitious ventures. We understand the pitfalls, we feel the euphoria. We won’t waste your time.

Hamburg, Berlin and Copenhagen). We have access to partners with expert
knowledge who complement our strategic consultancy and funding services.

Our Journey

Venturenomix was co-founded in 2019 by Mareike and Alex Chalkley, two seasoned
entrepreneurs and consultants with a combined 30+ years of experience in starting, scaling and innovating successful businesses across various sectors.

Over the past decade, Mareike and Alex grew a UK-based consultancy offering funding advice to entrepreneurs and business leaders. What started as a kitchen-table venture focussed on riding the renewable energy wave that (somewhat belatedly) hit the British Isles in those days, grew to what is now one of the most successful R&D grant funding consultancies, securing over €50m for clients in the energy, finance, manufacturing, education and health sectors.

But something was missing. Collaboration with other business partners meant compromise and over the years business focus shifted from clean energy to general R&D. With the climate emergency becoming ever-more present, it was time to re-focus on what we are passionate about: sustainability in its true sense. Venturenomix was created as a Europe- wide strategic consultancy that helps you shape, develop, plan and, crucially, fund your projects.

No greenwash, no half-hearted measures but disruptive, high-impact ventures that will make a difference. Our bit is to help you make it reality.
