A recent report published by venture capital analysis firm, Dealroom, has revealed that CleanTech startups have raised a record-breaking $32billion globally so far in 2021, more than quadrupling global CleanTech investment in 2016 and already exceeding investment in 2020.
As we stand at a critical turning point towards a green and sustainable future, CleanTech leaders are already predicting investments of this size are only just the beginning. Investment giant, Blackrock’s CEO, Larry Fink, said he expects the next 1,000 billion-dollar start-ups to be in climate tech, while Bill Gates expects there to be eight or 10 Teslas created in the space.
The US currently dominates the CleanTech scene, raising the most funding compared to any other country. The Bay Area in California is home to the biggest concentration of CleanTech startups with 349, which all play hand in hand to maintain the US as the leading CleanTech hotspot.
