Kleiner Perkins spin-off fund raises $350 million for clean tech



G2VP will invest in sustainable tech companies, including energy, transportation and heavy industry technologies. Investors in the fund include Shell, Mitsui, ABB Group, Kleiner Perkins chairman, John Doerr, as well as unnamed institutional investors and family offices.

  • New fund, old leadership… The partners leading the fund are all from Kleiner Perkins’ Green Growth Fund, which was launched in 2008 and is among the $10 billion Kleiner Perkins has raised through 20 funds in total.
  • Silver lining… The Green Growth Fund fund was a counterweight to Kleiner Perkins’ otherwise unsuccessful (though early) clean tech investment strategy.
  • Reputational risk… Reporting from Axios suggests Kleiner Perkins spun-off G2VP as a distancing measure.
