About Carbon Equity

We believe that everybody should have the ability to use their capital to halt climate change. We want to offer a new generation of investors the opportunity to have real climate impact with their capital. And make an awesome return in the process. Only then can we unlock the power of the masses, make everyone a co-owner of this transition and send more capital to where it’s needed most. At Carbon Equity, we believe that the best way to accelerate decarbonization with your money, is by investing in companies that are bringing innovative climate technologies to market. Like 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. With Carbon Equity, we made it our mission to open up this world of climate private market investing.

In line with that mission, we’ve built the leading climate investment platform for everyday investors. A platform that makes private equity and venture capital accessible by removing traditional high capital barriers, jargon and complexities. We connect our investors’ investments to the leading climate venture capital and private equity funds so they can sit back, relax and see their capital make real climate impact.

We are a solidly funded company, giving us the capital to scale toward our mission. Are you ready to bring this mission to life with with us? 🚀
