SOSV Climate Tech Summit 2023
The venture capital firm SOSV is hosting it’s third, free, annual SOSV Climate Tech Summit on Sep. 26-27.
The Princeton, NJ-based venture capital firm SOSV has been producing the Climate Tech Summit since 2021. In 2022, the event brought together nearly 7,000 attendees from around the world to listen to the world’s top founders and investors in climate tech. The third SOSV Climate Tech Summit will take place on Sept. 26-27, 2023.
The summit will bring together top investors, founders, and scientists to discuss climate tech as an emerging category for startups and venture investing. Our goal is to deepen venture, academic, corporate, and media understanding of the accomplishments and potential of startups in climate tech.
Human and planetary health is a key mission at SOSV, and we believe that this mission includes educating the startup ecosystem on how best to take on the emerging climate tech category. The summit follows the launch of the SOSV Climate Tech 100 list, published earlier this year and noted by TechCrunch, which established SOSV as a leading pre-seed and early stage investor in climate tech. In five months, the SOSV Climate Tech 100 startups value grew by 44% and 25 startups on the list raised new funding. The largest contributors to the jump in valuation were major raises at NotCo, Formlabs, and R-Zero.
Programming for the SOSV Climate Tech Summit is based on our extensive networks and expertise on many areas of climate tech—thanks to our IndieBio and HAX programs—and more than 750 investors in our Climate Tech 100 companies. That said, we are incorporating many speakers from outside SOSV’s portfolio and co-investor network. We are also offering dedicated breakout sessions to major early stage climate tech investing groups.
