Thank you for including VertueLab and climate change solutions in your philanthropic vision.
Less than 2 percent of philanthropic dollars are currently being allocated towards climate change.
VertueLab is a cleantech accelerator. We raise the success of early stage cleantech startups through a proven model that includes a holistic assessment, program/mentoring/acceleration support, and early stage capital investment.
Our entire model is built upon strong relationships. We adventure beside some of the most innovative minds in the country solving the climate crisis through technology and scale.
VertueLab was the first accelerator in the nation to apply catalytic capital to cleantech innovations. Since 2011, we have supported nearly 60 companies, deployed over $7.3 million dollars into early stage cleantech startups which have had a 19x leverage of return-- accumulating over $141.6 million in follow on investing.
We are expanding our proven model throughout the Pacific Northwest-- a region primed for scientific discovery, talent, and sustainability innovation. In early 2020, will launch the Climate Impact Fund I-- an early stage fund that will provide $5 million dollars to climate change innovations across the Pacific Northwest.
We are grateful for your support and you can expect a thank you call from us and updates from time to time on great things happening with our innovations and companies. We like to celebrate with our innovators and as a donor to our organization-- you also may be invited on a field trip when they reach one of their milestones.
We are grateful for your support and will put your funding to work to fight the climate crisis.
We cannot do this alone. Thank you for being the solution.
