Aloha! 

Applications for our 2018 cohort are open until May 25. Forward this email to one exceptional entrepreneur who you think we should meet! We fund companies in multiple stages (generally pre-seed to Series C) in the areas of energy, agriculture, water, mobility/transportation, cybersecurity, recycling/materials, and natural resources. We're also looking for solutions that improve the infrastructure and environment in underrepresented communities. We provide up to $1M per company for deployment, and we co-design and co-fund steel-in-the-ground projects with strategic customers.

And for those of you who are ready to apply, I'll be hosting an Online Q&A on May 18 at 2 p.m. HT. RSVP here.

See you there,
Ramsay
Head of Pipeline and Partnerships
