Energize Ventures is a venture capital fund investing in companies that accelerate the digital innovation of energy & heavy industry.

Energize focuses on pre-growth stage investments where our team of experts can use our investment, operating and industry experience to accelerate entrepreneurial success.

At Energize, we are currently investing out of our first fund. We raised $165M for Fund I, and have a mix of LPs: from traditional, institutional LPs to family offices, and core industrial strategics. We aim to leverage our industrial network access to gain and provide unique insights to our portfolio companies.

For our investments, we invest $5-10M upfront and reserve another $5-10M for follow-on commitments. We tend to lead rounds between Series A-C. And, given our industry focus and entrepreneur commitments, we are going to have a focused portfolio of 12-15 companies.

We like to say we are investing in a transition, not an outcome. I suggest you read this post if you want to dig into what Investing in the Transition means to us!
