Clean Growth Fund is a £101m climate venture capital fund. We empower UK clean tech entrepreneurs with the expertise and capital that they need to tackle the climate crisis.
Global warming is the greatest threat that humankind has ever faced. Clean Growth Fund was set up in 2020 to invest in UK-based innovations that significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions or improve resource efficiency across: power, transport, industry, buildings, waste and water industries.
We look for innovations that will abate significant amounts of CO2-eq per year and will typically make an initial investment between £500k and £3m – predominantly during Seed or Series A stages.
Clean Growth Fund is multiple award winning and led by its Founder and Managing Partner, Beverley Gower-Jones OBE, a recognised thought-leader in early stage cleantech investments and commercialisation. The fund is passionate about creating tomorrow’s climate tech leaders which is spearheaded by our skilled team of investors, engineers and comms experts.
