Climate Tech Investment Analyst

About Carbon Equity

Carbon Equity is the leading climate investment platform for private investors. A platform that makes private equity and venture capital accessible by removing traditional jargon, mechanics, and complexities. We enable people to invest in the world’s best climate tech fund and let the experts invest for them, so they can sit back, relax and enjoy how their capital is making a real climate impact and strong returns.

Carbon Equity was founded with the goal to help people have real climate impact with their money, while making a solid return in the process. We believe that the best way to accelerate decarbonization with your capital is by investing in companies bringing innovative climate technologies to market. Think alternative proteins, zero-carbon cement, nuclear fusion and electric tractors. Most of these companies are funded on the private market, via venture capital and growth equity funds. These funds have high barriers to entry, with minimum tickets in the millions. Carbon Equity opens this world of climate private market investing up to affluent investors.

We are a well-funded startup (or scaleup according to some 😎), allowing us to grow rapidly to accomplish our mission. So far we have raised EUR 3m in a pre-seed and seed round for our business, and our runway extends to 2024. We are currently a team of 15, soon to be 20!

We have raised over EUR 85m from 350+ customers and have committed to eight world-class climate funds to date, including Energy Impact Partner’s Deep Decarbonization Frontier Fund, Astanor Ventures, Lightrock and 2150.vc.
