We Help Founders Build a Cleaner Future.

Every climate tech startup we invest in can mitigate 2.5 gigatons of CO2 by 2050.

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


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.


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


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