The cleantech sector continues to advance as a major point of interest for investors. Companies focused on the manufacture of electric vehicles, food production efficiency, solar energy, building technology and their peer organizations are seeing an upward trend in investment, especially following the passage of the landmark Inflation Reduction Act in August that provides additional funding for the sector.
Atlanta Transforms Into a Cleantech Hub
Many startups as well as established organizations are already benefiting from this bump in exposure and interest in the cleantech sector, with Atlanta poised to become an even more attractive clean tech hub.
Companies focused on ameliorating the effects of climate change are finding a like-minded community in Atlanta, especially given the expectation that there will be billions of dollars channeled toward the city and its cleantech organizations. This year’s Venture Atlanta conference will feature partners from venture firms like Sequoia Capital, Accel-KKR and Sapphire Ventures as well as a panel with cleantech venture innovators Bill Nussey, Jonathan Shieber and Sophie Purdom exploring “The Next Trillion Dollar Tech Disruption That Might Just Save the Planet: Climate Tech.”
The Atlanta cleantech sector is already seeing significant improvement across a number of relevant metrics such as research funding, demonstrated investor interest and the development of related technologies.
Investments Pouring Into Food Waste and Loss
Along with investments in biodiversity, clean air, climate change and the like, there is an increasing sub-focus on the benefit of investments in food chain resiliency, specifically those organizations working to generate more sustainable methods of production for the sector.
Companies focused on minimizing the costly issues of food waste and loss are already reaping the benefits as investors see a sound, long-term trajectory for the sector and clear financial benefit. In 2021, following a nearly 10-year trend, direct private investment into systems designed to reduce food waste reached $2b.
While there is already consolidated interest in this class of investing, there remain substantial gaps in investment pipelines supporting solutions to challenge food waste. An untold quantity of food still goes unsold or uneaten in the United States, underscoring the necessity for companies hyper-focused on reducing food loss and delivering real value to improve supply chains.
