Montreal, September 12, 2023 – Cycle Capital, a leading ClimateTech venture capital investment platform, announces the expansion of its investment team by adding two new resources.
Adriana Danaila joins the ESG Impact team as an Analyst. Adriana brings over eight years of experience in consulting and technology, with expertise in financial valuation and Environmental Impact Assessment. Adriana spent the first few years of her career as a Consultant for FTI Consulting and Deloitte France, where she worked on the valuation and quantification of claims relative to damages incurred in the context of litigation and international arbitration.
Most recently, Adriana worked as an ESG Manager at Iroko, where she developed an ESG notation grid adapted to the fund’s real estate portfolio and ensured that ESG characteristics were considered at each step of the acquisition and management decisions.
Adriana holds a Bachelor’s in Business Administration from ESSEC Business School and a Master’s in International Relations and Diplomacy from Université Jean Moulin Lyon III. She is currently preparing for her CFA® Level II certification.
Minalou Kunze–Roelens joins the team as an Analyst in the investment team.

Prior to that, she was an Investment Associate at Front Row Ventures, Canada’s first pre-seed university-focused venture capital fund and a Partnerships and Seed Fund Intern at Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC).
Minalou holds a Bachelor of Commerce (BCom) with Concentrations in Finance and Managing for Sustainability from McGill University.
