Unleashing Cleantech Innovation for Climate Action.



We are a Climate Impact Accelerator

Solving it requires an immediate and massive global mobilization -- one that includes all of us.

Clean technologies are a critical part of the solution, but they often struggle due to a lack of early-stage capital and support. At VertueLab, we accelerate the most promising climate solutions by finding, funding, and supporting cleantech innovators and entrepreneurs – the visionary women and men working at the front lines of the climate crisis.

We are Bold Leaders.
By boldly filling the early-stage funding gap via our VertueLab Climate Impact Fund while simultaneously providing a suite of expert support services, we fuel a groundbreaking approach to speeding deployment of new climate solutions – so impact happens faster.

We are a Climate Solutions Community.
VertueLab serves as an intermediary between the investors and individuals wanting to take direct climate action and the innovators developing tomorrow’s climate solutions, today. We track, analyze, and communicate impact all along the way, building a community of people passionate about solving the climate crisis. Join us!
