The next-generation of European and Israeli climate-tech founders are poised to solve humanity’s most pressing challenge, but are heavily underfunded and underrepresented at Seed stage.

Benefitting from unparalleled levels of engagement with the climate tech community, our platform-based model backs the pioneers building the technology that will become the infrastructure of tomorrow.

Given that decades of collective actions got us into the climate mess, we leverage Energy Tech Summit, Energy Tech Challengers and Climate50 to make a collaborative effort to mobilise resources and get humanity back on track to decarbonize the economy.

David Trainavicius

Co-founder & CEO @ PVcase

Our continued partnership with Contrarian Ventures has been crucial to PVcase’s sustained success. Their experience in scaling climate tech startups made them the ideal firm to work with in our early stages and Series A. It’s a breath of fresh air to work with like-minded investors that are as dedicated to fighting climate change as we are.

Working with the Contrarian Ventures team has been incredible. Their mission to solve the net zero challenge through technology aligned with our values and they have been instrumental in our growth – from seed to series B.

Talmon Marco

Co-Founder & CEO @ H2Pro

H2Pro has raised over $100MM from some of the best investors around. But back in 2019, when we were looking for our seed financing, no one would talk to us. No one, except the Contrarian team. They took the time to study what we were doing and were the first VC to say “Yes”. It was $250K, which at the time meant the world to us. Since then, they always helped with a call, with a link, with insight and most important, with being good, supportive investors that understood the needs of the company – and not just their needs as investors. We love you.

Contrarian are great to work with. We share the same ambition of scaling climate solutions to accelerate Net Zero transition. They helped us sharpen our thinking about our product, and the wider market, as well as supporting us through events and expertise. We’re very happy with the work we’ve done together.
