  3. 3. 2021 marks 4 years since the final close of our European Growth fund, Expon I. We detailed our reasons for founding Expon Capital in our Manifesto. It has remained the bedrock of our firm, defining our purpose and the positive impact we expect to have. We have always held the conviction that returns and impact should work together and re-inforce each other. In fact, being impact-focused can make it easier to attract top talent and help generate better returns. Over the past years, we have been thrilled to witness a rising ecosystem of purpose-driven startups in Europe as well as the emergence of 15 new impact-focused VC funds. It has been a comforting journey to see our conviction gradually become mainstream. Effecting change at scale will require everyone’s participation. At Expon Capital, we continue to learn and grow together as an impact team. In 2018, we adopted the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as guidance to define our “Purpose” criteria. In 2019, we refined our approach and started using the 169 targets of the SDG goals in our investment thesis. This is a challenge for any lean investment team, but we’ve refined it and, in your hands, is our first impact report. We see it as a starting point in our journey. As a team, we are super excited about future improvements to further integrate impact aspects across deal sourcing, due diligence, legal, portfolio management and exit. We hope that you will enjoy reading our Impact Report. Thank you for your time and support. WELCOME JEROME WITTAMER MANAGING PARTNER LILY WANG ASSOCIATE

  36. 36. We certainly hope that you enjoyed discovering the impact of our portfolio and firm as much as we did to put it together. WHERE WE COME FROM Our ethos is first and foremost about responsibility. Our intention was and remains a deep sense of responsibility and purpose. We recognise that these are personal and loosely defined. We never intended to be “impact investors” because we did not know what the label meant. As we progressed on our journey, we have learned that these concepts are fluid and being forged in the crucible of societal crisis and transformation. WHERE WE ARE GOING We will not progress alone. Initiatives aimed at creating frameworks abound, globally. What we need now are standards embraced by regulation. Europe has taken the lead in defining a framework, including a taxonomy that should bring more clarity and rigor to this maturing field. We also salute efforts towards incorporating impact measurement into accounting, because impact should be fully integrated into the world of business so that these objectives become everyone’s. Thank you for supporting us, for investing responsibly and for giving a new meaning to the word progress. THANK YOU INVESTMENT TEAM
