We provide seed capital and management expertise to climate tech start-ups. We are seasoned operating executives and investors with strong capabilities in the energy and environmental sectors.
Our 35+ partners have deep experience in finance, new product commercialization, team building, technology development, and fundraising. Many of us have been entrepreneurs and understand what it takes to create a start-up. We can be a sounding board for you as well as provide strategic advice. With each investment, we bring not only capital but also the value of our expertise and networks.
We are proud to be recognized as team players by our portfolio companies and other climate tech leaders.
We work most closely with our sister organization, Clean Energy Ventures (CEV), a venture capital firm focused on early-stage climate tech companies. Founded in 2017 by three CEVG partners, CEV is managing its first $110M fund. Together we source deals, conduct due diligence, and provide follow-on funding. We support our companies with mentoring and advice as they grow. This relationship leverages the skill sets of both entities and provides additional value to start-ups that far exceeds the sum of the parts.
We also collaborate with incubators, accelerators, industry groups, strategic corporate partners, and advocacy organizations to achieve shared goals.
Diversity Equity & Inclusion
CEVG aims to foster diversity, equity, and inclusion in our organization, our pipeline, our portfolio companies, and our community. We recognize the inequality in the fields of climate tech and finance and are working to break down structural barriers and hidden biases. This is not only the right thing to do on a human level, but a necessity to confront climate change. Simply put, we need the talent, creativity, and ingenuity of all people to address this existential and complex problem.
