At no other time in history has human activity had such a significant and escalating impact on the earth and the environment. Emerald Technology Ventures is a global leader in clean technology venture capital. Founded in 2000, Emerald is a pioneer in the rapidly emerging clean technology sector and is focused exclusively on innovative technologies in energy, advanced materials and water. The foundation of Emerald Technology Ventures is based on our conviction that to be a successful sector focused venture capital investor requires not only business and deal transaction experience but significant technical knowledge about the sectors in which one invests. With this principle in mind we have assembled a truly unique investment team which combines experienced venture capital professionals with highly competent clean technology specialists. With eighteen team members, we operate from offices in Zurich, Switzerland and Toronto, Canada. Since inception, Emerald has managed three venture capital funds and two venture capital portfolio mandates totalling over EUR 300 million (USD 440 million). Our investors include leading financial institutions and multinational corporations. Emerald manages one of the largest clean technology venture portfolios across Europe and North America and is proud to have backed companies like Evergreen Solar (Nasdaq: ESLR), Pemeas (acquired by BASF) and RuggedCom (TSX:RCM).
