Early-Stage ClimateTech Investments to Protect & Restore our Prithvi from Climate Change

Clean, Renewable Energy Generation & Use

Sustainable Displacement of Animal Use & Production

Our mission

We are part of the growing movement of mission-driven individuals, businesses and institutions tackling this era-defining challenge. Investment in climate tech has grown enormously in the past five years, and yet, we are still not even close to solving the climate crisis. As the United Nations Secretary-General stated, climate change is 'the defining issue of our time'.

Prithvi Ventures is an impact-driven early-stage rolling fund set up to protect our Prithvi and all its inhabitants. To protect our planet, we focus on climate tech that redesigns the way we generate and consume energy; and to protect our fellow Prithvi inhabitants, we focus on tech that replaces animals wherever they are used by humans, be that in food, fashion, beauty or pharmaceuticals. 

Human-induced greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are now higher than at any point in human history, dramatically accelerating climate change. In particular, carbon dioxide and methane emissions are of major concern due to their Global Warming Potential (GWP). Methane is shorter acting than carbon dioxide, but around 80 times more potent. According to the United Nations, animal agriculture accounts for 14.5% of global GHG emissions.

What actions can we take?

Alternatives to animal products
 

We support startups that are developing innovative alternatives to animal products, using plant-, fungi-, cell-, and fermentation-based ingredients and technology to replace animals in the food, fashion, household goods, beauty, pharmaceutical and automotive industries. Human use of animals is a leading cause of climate change and biodiversity loss, and the spread of zoonotic diseases. It also causes immense suffering to animals, who are sentient beings and feel joy and sadness, pleasure and pain, just as we do.

Climate Tech
 

In the clean energy sector, our focus is on reducing GHG from the transportation and electricity generation sectors by investing in entrepreneurs who use data analytics-driven technologies to address mobility and grid solutions.
