We’re excited to share our selection of the first two funds joining our Climate Tech Portfolio Fund II — At One Ventures and Extantia. This webinar brings a founding partner from both funds to discuss:
What is your unique investment thesis?
Where do you see opportunities coming from undervalued sectors?
Can you realize VC returns by investing in climate hardware?
Why will investing in deep tech companies work out this time versus the clean tech 1.0 boom and bust?
And much more! Below you can find an introduction to the fund managers and the funds.

At One Ventures
At One Ventures finds, funds and grows teams to catalyze a world where humanity is a net positive to nature. They back early-stage (Seed and Series A) companies that use disruptive deep tech to upend the unit economics of established industries while dramatically reducing their planetary footprint.

Extantia’s mission is to back the next generation of mission-driven founders who can save at least 100 million tonnes of CO2 annually. It’s one of the few European funds that exclusively focuses on investing in hardware technologies and has one of the stronger impact mandates we’ve seen to date.
We look forward to seeing you there!
