CREtech Launches CREtech Climate Venture Coalition Led by CEO Michael Beckerman

Aim Is To Drive Investments In Climate Tech Solutions In The Built World

New York, NY (February 21, 2024)CREtech, the leading global technology and sustainability conference company devoted to Reimagining the Built World, has announced the launch of the “CREtech Climate Venture Coalition”, consisting of a group of the leading and most active venture firms focused on investing in climate tech startups in the Built World. While the Coalition will not be making direct investments, it will serve as a catalyst to drive deal flow for potential investments for each venture firm that is part of the Coalition. CREtech CEO Michael Beckerman, an active angel investor in climate tech startups, will lead the Coalition initiative for CREtech.

Given CREtech’s tremendous global audience, the Coalition’s website will serve as a portal for Built World focused climate tech startups to submit their fundraising information, which will then be shared directly with the Coalition’s members. Startups in all categories focused on the decarbonization of the Built World, the source of 40% of all GHG’s globally, will be encouraged to submit their fundraising information, agnostic of stage or funding size. CREtech will have no role in vetting or selecting the submissions and all data will be kept in the strictest of confidence within the Coalition and not be shared publicly.

”As someone who is deeply committed to the decarbonization of the Built World, I have been both discouraged by the slow pace of climate investments, and at the same time, encouraged by the extraordinary number of startups that are building solutions that will have a positive impact on reducing carbon emissions emanating from the property and construction sectors globally,“ stated Michael Beckerman. “With the launch of our CREtech Climate Venture Coalition, I hope to be able to make a significant impact in accelerating investments for climate tech startups in our industry and therefore make measurable progress in reducing emissions globally.” Beckerman concluded.
