We Help Founders Build a Cleaner Future.

We invest in climate tech startups that reduce carbon emissions through better production or use of energy.

At Clean Energy Ventures, we invest in companies commercializing disruptive advanced energy technologies and business model innovations. For us, investing in climatetech isn't new; our leadership has been investing successfully in early-stage climatetech companies for over 15 years together. We work to help our investments achieve significant scale to address global climate change.

Our Investment Strategy

Focus

Stay sharp. Seek only technologies that can substantially reduce greenhouse gas emissions to the tune of 2.5 GT of CO2e by 2050, and achieve impact quickly.

DILIGENCE

Start from the exit. Select organizations that can be acquired early to help strategic multinationals disrupt their own technology value chains.

MENTORSHIP

Build management teams. Provide expert guidance to transform brilliant technical teams into business powerhouses using our broad network of experienced cleantech leaders.
