KPCB has championed greentech investing since 1999 — back when the bandwagon still had more than a few empty seats. That early start enabled us to assemble a stellar line-up of partners whose experience, strategic advice and business acumen can galvanize greentech innovation and foresee new market opportunities.
We actively invest in ventures with the potential to solve the urgent challenge of the world’s climate crisis, as well as solutions that take a novel approach to using natural resources more efficiently. This focus includes funding technologies related to clean water, renewable energy, next-generation transportation and sustainable agriculture. We offer entrepreneurs an accomplished team of dynamic, in-the-know business partners who are passionate and global-minded about greentech and climate solutions.
If you’re thinking about a greentech business, think of KPCB as your catalyst. We’re ready to help you change the game, change the industry or change the world.
KPCB’s Green Growth Fund (GGF) was established in 2008 as a US$1billion initiative to invest in and support later-stage greentech ventures. The fund provides growth capital for more mature companies with demonstrated market traction in developing innovative, scalable solutions that address the global climate crisis and promote more efficient use of natural resources. Through the Green Growth Fund, we back companies in a variety of technology sectors, including alternative fuels, renewable energy and low-carbon solutions for transportation.
Recent KPCB Green Growth Fund investments include Enphase Energy, a leading developer of solar microinverter technology; OPOWER, a software-as-a-service company that helps utilities meet efficiency goals through effective customer interaction; and Silver Spring Networks, which focuses on smart grid applications.
