About Carbon Equity

Carbon Equity is the world's first Climate Venture Capital and Private Equity fund investing platform.

Carbon Equity was founded to help people have real climate impact with their money, while making a solid return in the process. We believe that investing in companies bringing innovative climate technologies to market is the best way to accelerate decarbonization. Think of 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. Such funds have high barriers to entry, with minimum tickets in the millions. Carbon Equity opens this world of climate private market investing up to individual investors by lowering ticket sizes and bundling investors together.

Through the Carbon Equity platform, we offer low-minimum access to the world's leading climate investment funds. We focus on multiple asset classes including venture capital, private equity, private debt and real assets. Carbon Equity offers you the opportunity to maximize the climate impact of your investible savings. Meanwhile, you get to invest alongside the world's best climate investors, benefit from venture-type returns whilst mitigating financial risk through a high degree of diversification.

We are a well-funded startup, enabling us to grow rapidly to accomplish our mission. We are an ambitious, diverse and international team of 22!
