Climate List 2022

Climate tech is having a moment. Last year, the total amount of capital poured into the space surpassed over $40 billion. The capital influx has coincided with a growing realization amongst businesses that they need to assess risk and design strategies to mitigate the impact of climate change. All of this means it’s a great time to get in on the ground floor of a climate tech startup. The companies featured on the Startup Search’s Climate List, like all companies on Startup Search Lists, are backed by great venture firms, growing fast and hiring now.
