Transition VC has quietly taken root over the past two years. Its founders have diligently forged partnerships with climate tech trailblazers during the Seed and Series A stages, fostering growth and innovation under the radar. Now, they've chosen to step into the spotlight, making their debut with an enlightening feature in Bloomberg News.
With a resounding commitment to bridging the chasm between conventional technology, climate science, corporate initiatives, and policy, Transition VC heralds a new era in climate innovation. Its interdisciplinary team stands united behind a singular mission: propelling a shift towards a flourishing, resilient society that harmonizes with the boundaries of our planet.
The foundation for this audacious pursuit lies in the concept of planetary boundaries, a visionary framework crafted by the Stockholm Resilience Center. This paradigm assesses nine critical systems burdened by human impact—ranging from ocean acidification and climate upheaval to freshwater consumption and biodiversity depletion.
Mona Alsubaei, a partner at Transition VC, eloquently encapsulates the fund's ethos: "If we look at our planet, our ecosystem, it’s very interconnected. If we just look at carbon, we might solve the carbon crisis, but that has a cascading effect in other ways, maybe biodiversity or land use, that need to be addressed." This holistic perspective underscores Transition VC's commitment to comprehensive and sustainable solutions, reflecting the interconnectedness of our world.
