Are you excited about the opportunity to invest in a clean, sustainable world and a healthier future. Do you want to give back and support entrepreneurs and businesses aligned with your environmental values.

E8 presents opportunities
to invest in a prosperous and sustainable planet-whether from your philanthropic dollars or your individual investment funds. We identify promising enterprises which will move the needle on decarbonization, on climate change solutions, and on environmental excellence. 


For accredited investors who want to invest their own funds in promising, early-stage cleantech companies,

E8's traditional angel investing membership is an ideal way to seek both environmental and financial returns.

And to do so alongside  some of the best and most fun cleantech minds in the ecosystem. 

Remote Members

E8 members are fun, collegial, interesting, enlightening seekers of impact.

You have a passion for accelerating decarbonization and climate solutions, for creating a cleaner, healthier and more sustainable planet, and for helping to create profitable market solutions. 

And you'd like a hands-on, up-front invitation to the action.


You understand the risks and the benefits of early-stage investments, and find it a fun and exciting challenge to spot the most promising.

You value shared analysis, but want the freedom to make individual investment choices.

You seek out smart, interesting, curious minds from fascinating and myriad backgrounds.

E8 members share a commitment to solving for the long term health of the planet, not simply the short-term pursuit of quick returns.  


We seek opportunities that will be profitable while taking on the challenges of sustainability, cleaning the environment, reducing carbon and other greenhouse gases, and tackling the implications of a changing climate.


That's where the fun is!  That's where the impact lies!

We assess early-stage companies and innovations on their potential financial, environmental, and social returns, each weighing the mix against our own individual goals, and each making our own investment decisions.

We screen companies together, subsets of the membership undertake objective and insightful due diligence together, and we all share our knowledge and insights. 

E8 members come from a wide range of backgrounds and experience. Many are successful entrepreneurs themselves, or have a proven history of successfully building and leading companies from across all sectors of the economy.  Some bring a rich set of experience and skills in a key sector of clean technology. All of us have a desire to invest our time and funds in changing the future.

We are part of something bigger than ourselves, and our passion to make a difference drives us.


If you are an accredited investor who wants to play some part in that, we invite you to be a guest at one of our member meetings.   Our regular monthly meetings are virtual so you can join us from anywhere in the world.

What is an accredited investor?

This is a term defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission.   Many securities may only be offered to investors meeting the definition.   This is intended to better protect people who do not have the income or net worth to absorb the inherent risks of investing in early-stage companies.  There are many rules affecting private placements, and E8 must - and does - abide by them.


Individuals are accredited investors if they have a net worth, or joint net worth with a spouse, in excess of $1,000,000, excluding primary residence, and/or individual income in excess of $200,000, or joint income with a spouse in excess of $300,000, in each of the two most recent years and a reasonable expectation of reaching the same income level in the current year.   Please see the above link for more details.


For those preferring to use philanthropic capital to

prioritize climate action, E8's Decarbon8-US Fund  

is a perfect way for anyone, accredited or not, to accelerate high potential, market-ready but still early-stage decarbonization startups.
