Showcasing and preserving Appalachia’s natural environment

West Virginia is beautiful. Mountains. Streams. Peaks. Valleys. And yes, it’s green. Just wait until you see it in springtime.

It’s a landscape with countless opportunities for outdoor recreation — hiking, biking, climbing, white-water rafting, exploring —  and immersing yourself in the wonder of West Virginia.

Investing in, preserving and introducing new residents to our unique environment is a priority of the Foundation. We also strive to invest and support companies that share this philosophy.

Appalachia possesses unparalleled natural beauty that provides ample opportunity for outdoor recreation —  attracting 21st Century talent who seek new adventures while serving as catalysts for new sources of economic growth.

The funding and support from Wing 2 Wing and the personal support from Brad has been so deeply appreciated in our firm. They came in as one of our earliest LPs and their care and values alignment has been incredibly meaningful to our team and our mission to help humanity become a net positive to nature.

Attracting and Retaining a Vibrant Workforce

Ascend West Virginia offers a signature “remote worker” program that welcomes those who actively participate in the 21st Century economy to relocate to West Virginia and call it their home.


Aiming to End Extinction

Colossal is using CRISPR technology in the de-extinction of previously lost species to restore our ecosystems, as well as genetically engineering other advanced biological solutions to combat climate change and pollution.
