Venture For ClimateTech: Hopes, Choices, & Community

  • The stage that our program serves is unique and important for de-risking climate tech. There is a gap in early-stage funding at angel and preseed levels for climate tech founders that our non-dilutive funding can help bridge.
  • One of the most powerful ways we can support our founders is by helping them access and fund talent. As one of our incredible board members, Seth Levine, articulates in this thread, “the best founders don’t build companies, they build teams that build companies”.
  • We need to build with, not for, our community if we want to build a movement around our mission and the founders we serve.
  • We can be a gateway for global innovators by helping them bring their technology to the U.S.
  • New York State (NYS) is the ideal ecosystem and market for climate tech founders because of the pro-climate policies that have been adopted here. I can’t speak more highly of the progressive climate tech community in NYS. NYSERDA has been instrumental in bringing this community to life, which is why we feel lucky to have a partner that gets what climate tech founders need!
  • We are set up structurally for success by being able to work collaboratively with as many groups as possible. Since we are a non-profit, we can operate at an incredibly high level of transparency. Transparency begets trust, and I find it refreshing to be able to operate with everything out on the table.
Our new brand in it’s glory
