For Founders

Investment stage

Focused at investing at the earliest stages (pre-seed & seed focused). Opportunistically will invest in incredible companies at other stages.

Investment decisions

Exponential Impact establishes Investment Committees in partnership with the experienced investors at Climate Capital and C3 (Climate Capital Collective) to review and approve investments.

Investment strategy

We expect to deploy $25k-$100K checks in pre-seed companies and $100K+ checks into seed-stage companies, depending on fund size. For larger allocations, EIRF will partner with C3 to syndicate allocations as large as $1M.
