ClimateTech, GreenTech and CleanTech represent a constantly growing market. In Finscale, Solenne Niedercorn-Desouches’ podcast, we took a look at the three waves of investment and the new investors with Satgana’s operational director, Isabelle Albert.
We talk to Satgana’s COO, Isabelle Albert, about the key distinctions between the terms ClimateTech, GreenTech and CleanTech. This market, which represented investments of $70bn in 2022, has been growing steadily for several years, testifying to the awakening of awareness. We look at the three waves of investment: infrastructure, carbon and more recently use or technological innovations, as well as DeepTech. We also look at the new investors and the place of the historical investors.
Albert explains the role played by certain research centres such as EPFL or Agro Paris. We look in detail at the team and the entire ecosystem around the fund, including its board of directors, advisors and partners such as Stripe and AWS.
Satgana’s COO goes into more detail on the six investment themes related to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the reasons for the choice to focus on Europe and Africa.
We conclude by explaining the choice that led Satgana to Luxembourg, both for its international outreach and for the support of the International Climate Finance Accelerator.
