Despite the overall market slowdown, VC interest in climatetech has continued to stay strong — especially as extreme weather events like Hurricane Ian happen more and more frequently and wreak havoc across the globe.

Case in point: Though deal count is down from 2021 levels — a year many agree is an outlier in the VC world — 2022 is on track to beat 2020 as the second-hottest year for climatetech investment.

Included are funds like Collaborative Fund, Social Impact Capital, Obvious Ventures, Third Sphere, Voyager Ventures, Powerhouse, Lowercarbon Capital, Breakthrough Energy Ventures, Emerson Collective, and more.
