Catalysts for Climate tech

We're optimists.


We believe in the power of science to solve humanity's biggest problems and the power of markets to scale the benefits to everyone.


We believe the climate crisis is the single largest threat to humanity over the next century and decarbonisation is the biggest opportunity to remake our world to be cleaner, greener and more equitable.

We're scientists by education and have spent our careers at the intersection of technology, innovation and business. We've been fortunate to work with, and learn from, some of the smartest people in the world and to have worked on products that have impacted billions of lives.

Six years ago we realised that the work we were doing would not matter very much if we aren't able to avoid the most disastrous consequences of the climate crisis. Since then, we've turned our attention to what we can do to support entrepreneurs and scientists in the fight for the future of our planet.
