We invest 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 will save our planet.
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
“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 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.”
“Today we have an extraordinary opportunity to leverage diverse innovations—including business models, AI/ML, robotics, computational chemistry and synthetic biology—to rapidly shift towards sustainable living.”
“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.”
“Today, there’s an unprecedented opportunity for us to accelerate the shift to a sustainable economy.”
