Since 2012, we’ve been investing in entrepreneurs obsessed with solving humanity’s greatest challenges—climate change and sustainability. We’re former startup founders ourselves, we get it, and like you, we believe technology can save our planet. #earthtech
Wherever you operate, if your startup solves a carbon problem or a sustainability issue, we want to hear about it.
We work hands-on with founders, lending them our expertise—and our global network—to help accelerate their success.
In our previous lives, each of our partners founded and led the growth of many successful startups from idea to exit.
“We are at the dawn of a multi-decade overhaul of the global economy where low-carbon technologies will enable economic growth and sustainability to co-exist.”
Co-Founder and Managing Partner
“Entrepreneurs have the passion, ideas and drive to solve our most pressing environmental challenges. As past operators ourselves, we look forward to partnering in order to help them succeed.”
“We are investing the capital of today to build a future that is no longer hamstrung by carbon. The businesses of tomorrow will form the bedrock of a greener economy, disrupt all industries and present outsized financial returns.”
“Today, there’s an unprecedented opportunity for us to accelerate the shift to a sustainable economy.”
“We need to move fast to support breakthrough innovations that will accelerate the transition from fossil fuels to electrons, gas tanks to battery packs, linear to circular business models, meat-based to plant-based diets, and beyond.”
“Just as the Internet isn’t a sector so much as the foundation of the modern economy—so too, earthtech will evolve from being a sector into becoming the underpinning of a sustainable and efficient global economy. It’s only a matter of time.”
Co-Founder and Partner
“Climate change is a fundamentally existential concern and we have just this brief blip of time to protect our future. It’s a privilege to work on this generation-defining problem by supporting incredible founders, partnering with leading institutions, and creating a profound impact.”
“We invest in companies that foster sustainable economy because it is both a pressing need for the planet and an overlooked financial opportunity.”
“Every challenge creates an opportunity – and climate change presents the biggest of each.”
“We are at a pivotal time in history – one that affords us the chance to see the needs of tomorrow while investing in its solutions today. If we move quickly, we can seize a truly unprecedented opportunity to generate both impact and returns.”
Our Investment Focus
