September Cleantech Founders Breakfast Club: What’s the state of early stage climatetech investing post-IRA? Insights from Blackhorn Ventures
While the tech sector has witnessed a drastic pullback in venture funding, climatetech is a different story. Early stage investment across the clean energy ecosystem remains incredibly active with a record $26.8B in venture funding for the first half of 2022 through 968+ deals. As the Inflation Reduction Act moves towards implementation, what are investors looking for? As a Founder, how should you be thinking about unit economics, customer traction, and measuring your environmental impact?
