The climate crisis and global dependence on finite fossil fuel resources represent the greatest societal challenge and economic opportunity of our time.
The best and brightest business and technological talents are answering the call and responding through entrepreneurship as changes in public policy help to create and accelerate new opportunities.
Some generation opportunities require investors to write very large checks and speculate on market evolution. Companies that leverage technology to create the actionable intelligence and appropriate resource allocation necessary to conserve energy and valuable natural resources, such as water, will require less capital and are applicable today.
That is why City Light is actively seeking investments in companies that focus on resource conservation and energy efficiency as opposed to energy generation. We believe that these companies have the characteristics of capital efficiency, speed to market, and measurable value-creation that lend themselves to profitable early stage venture investing.
