- In 2022, early-stage investors significantly boosted their activity, growing their investments by 30% YoY to account for 68% of the total annual investments. Meanwhile, corporate investors saw their contribution shrink from 27% in 2020 to 5%, signaling a decisive shift in the landscape of the sector investment.
- Climate technologies are still at an early stage of development, so nearly half of the businesses sold are valued at less than €100 million. In the past ten years, only a small percentage (4%) of exited portfolio companies in the climate tech sector have achieved a valuation exceeding $1 billion.
- North America solidified its position as the leading region in the investment landscape by contributing 70% of the total annual funds raised. Europe followed with a contribution of 26%. Among individual countries, the United States dominated with $78 billion, followed by the United Kingdom with $17 billion and Germany with $7 billion.
