When Andrée-Lise Méthot founded Cycle Capital, her vision was to build the leading cleantech venture capital platform.
The successful addition of a seed and early stage fund, of a third fund in 2013 and of a Chinese fund in 2017 has also required the expansion of the team over the last years. We have an integrated investment management approach taking full advantage of the breadth and diversity of the specific experience and expertise of the whole team in a collaborative fashion.
It is with this approach that the Cycle Capital team’s vision has been fully operationalized and has now been scaled to invest in and grow successful growing sustainable companies across North America and in China. Fueled by the participation of our strategic partners, we direct venture capital investment to the best early or growth stage companies, supported by our seasoned team of financiers, engineers, operators working in collaboration with the best entrepreneurial teams to maximize returns on investment. Our “smart money” approach also leverages our vast network of contacts with industrial and business partners.
From agriculture technologies to green chemicals, including the new generation of biofuels, biomass transformation, smart grid, energy storage technologies, renewable energies, energy efficiency, Internet of Things (IoT) applied to resources management, big data and technologies dedicated to Smart Cities, we are working with companies that are rapidly and continuously changing the way we live and how we will be doing business in the years to come.
