The Drawdown Fund invests in growth equity businesses that are addressing the major drivers of climate change. We look for companies that have proven technology, established revenue and strong growth, clear competitive advantage, and experienced teams. We provide the growth capital needed to scale. Our businesses reduce emissions or sequester greenhouse gases while providing attractive risk-adjusted returns. Drawdown is the turning point at which we are reducing carbon at a rate greater than we are emitting it. Our businesses are expected to have a meaningful impact on this equation.
We make $10-$30 million investments in companies with proven business models seeking capital to scale growth and revenue. We typically work with companies with >$5 million in revenue. Our investments target solutions across three major systems: Sustainable Cities, Food & Agriculture, and Energy. Our flexible capital enables us to be the best possible partner to our portfolio companies.
The next industrial revolution is already underway. The transition to distributed, low-carbon energy is market-driven and a fundamental and permanent shift.
