About Elemental Excelerator

Elemental Excelerator is a Non-profit investment platform that invests in climate startups to address climate and social inequities head-on. In 2009, Elemental Excelerator launched a new non-profit model for funding climate technology deployment across our heaviest emitting sectors: energy, agriculture, mobility, industry and waste. Breaking down barriers to innovation alongside entrepreneurs provides us unique insight into the policies, markets and technologies needed to build systems that not only help us reach net zero by 2050 but also uplift people and communities around the world. We have learned that when it comes to system-wide decarbonization, technology has half the solution – and the community brings the other half.

Elemental strives to match a daring vision with equally bold and impactful action. As a non-profit, we are driven to put impact first. Our highly iterative model enables us to test many ways to drive equity alongside climate impact - to fundamentally alter the reality of climate work to be more inclusive and just. With a 10+ year track record of empowering solutions to climate change, we are poised for the next stage of growth and impact.

At Elemental, we blend a growth mindset with a dedication to inclusion and cultivating a dynamic culture where everyone’s contributions are valued and encouraged.
