Of the 200+ renewables companies funded in the last year, we identified 10 of the top teams using our Management Mosaic algorithm. From tidal power to green hydrogen, proven founders and teams are innovating in new sectors.
Renewables tech funding has been on a tear in recent years and is on pace to reach almost $8B in 2021. US-based solar and wind companies have typically dominated the space, but a growing portion of renewables funding is going to new technologies as well as to companies based outside of the US.
The barrage of press releases from research groups and startups promising the next great innovation in renewable energy can make it difficult to discern truth from speculation. However, the CB Insights Management Mosaic offers insight into where the industry is going.
Management Mosaic is an algorithm built by CB Insights data scientists that reduces the subjectivity inherent in assessing founding and management team quality and enables enterprises and investors to quickly identify the best startups.
