Chasing gigacorns: What are VCs after when they invest in climate tech?

About the event

VC investment in climate tech is growing at five times the rate of other sectors. Climate tech has a promising future — but what are the signs a fund is in it for the long run? This Sifted Talks will explore what VCs from Europe and Asia want to know when investing in climate tech and how startups can measure proof of impact.

We'll be discussing

  1. Less greed, more green: What data should investors look for on scalability to keep sustainability in mind? Is ESG useful or even relevant?
  2. The 10-year lifecycle: Are all investors suited to climate tech — or do founders need dedicated funds?
  3. Going for gamechangers: Which sectors have gigacorn potential? Should VCs shoot for gamechangers — or play it safe with potentially less impactful bets?
