Impact Investing and Venture Capital in the Cleantech Sector

Venture capital is an essential component in the value chain for clean technology development and deployment. According to Bloomberg New Energy Finance, global venture and private equity investment in clean energy peaked in 2008 at $12.2b before plummeting to $4.1b by 2013, but it has steadily grown each year since, reaching $10.5b in 2019.

What is driving the resurgence in cleantech investment, and what is the role of impact investing, in which investors seek to achieve both asset performance and non-financial returns? Why is this resurgence happening now, and how is it different than the cleantech boom ten years ago? What are the company characteristics that early stage cleantech investors look for, what are some interesting trends emerging in the sector, and what is "ClimateTech?"

Join us on February 24th to explore these and other questions at Impact Investing and Venture Capital in the Cleantech Sector, a thought leadership panel led by investment professionals from Braemar Energy Ventures, City Light Capital, and Urban Us. Be sure to stick around after the panel for networking.
