For more than a decade, SOSV’s founder and managing partner, Sean O’Sullivan, has been putting venture investing to work in support of climate tech startups.
It wasn’t until last month, however, that we looked across SOSV’s five accelerator programs to build a list of all our investments in climate tech. We decided to highlight a core group by creating the SOSV Climate Tech 100, a list of SOSV’s top companies addressing what we believe is the one of the greatest challenges facing mankind.
When we sharpened our pencils to look at the Climate Tech 100’s investment results, we were pleasantly surprised by what we found. As of April 2021, they have raised $1.85 billion to date and have a total valuation of $5.65 billion. The average company on the list is just four years old, and SOSV has invested $89 million, in most cases as the first investor.
