What is a Gigacorn?

We are all about Climate First. We invest in deep decarbonization
technologies that lead us to a world beyond fossil fuels. We back companies that make a meaningful contribution.

Reduction Potential of existing Portfolio:

8

Cut 8.2% of global CO2e emissions every year

930

Remove CO2e emissions equivalent to 930 million cars

100

Reduce 100% of EU's annual CO2 emissions

We are actively searching for companies that have the potential of becoming a “Gigacorn”, that is, companies capable of saving at least 1Gt of CO2e a year that are commercially viable with unicorn potential. We back exceptional entrepreneurs who achieve this either through direct technology impact of at least 100 Mt of CO2e a year or indirectly as a significant enabling force across sectors.

Carbon Math

In order to assess each company’s GREEN LINE, meaning how much CO2e they can save, we use our carbon math formula. The result is the amount of CO2e savings in the total addressable market (TAM)

Giga Suspects

The highest potential for CO2e reductions can be found in areas where the highest percentage of emissions are being generated, which is why we focus on the most polluting industries.
