ImpactAlpha, Apr. 7 – Voyager Ventures has raised a $100 million climate tech fund. The first fund from Sierra Peterson and Sarah Sclarsic attracted investment from a range of tech founders and CEOs, general partners from Union Square Ventures, Lowercarbon’s Chris Sacca, former GE CEO Jeff Immelt, and institutions including The Nature Conservancy and The Grantham Foundation.
Voyager will invest in North America and Europe-based tech that can decarbonize transportation, energy systems, and food and materials production. Voyager aims to sequester or avert 500 million tons of carbon dioxide equivalent over the life of the fund.
Peterson’s experience includes climate policy in the Obama White House Office of Energy and Climate Change and the International Energy Agency. Sclarsic co-founded car-sharing firm Getaround and was a founding business director at alt-protein company, Modern Meadow.
