Who We Are

Element 8 is a membership organization of private accredited investors focused exclusively on clean technology and sustainability.

At Element 8 we see abundant opportunities to create a bright and prosperous future. We value the promise of high environmental returns, yet expect financial returns commensurate with the risks of early involvement in start-up companies. Profit, but with a purpose.

Individual members make their own investment decisions, building a diverse portfolio over time to match their specific interests and goals.

Our group includes seasoned angel investors and venture capitalists, as well as new angels learning in a cooperative and supportive environment.

Element 8 members are themselves successful executives and entrepreneurs with the collective savvy to assess people and proposals.

We come from a myriad of backgrounds and industries, including all the many flavors of cleantech and high tech, software, finance and law, environmental engineering, real estate development, and the energy and utility spaces.  Together, we can provide sage advice, mentorship, and contacts to help young companies achieve market leadership.

We welcome you to join us!  Element 8’s collegial atmosphere will give you access to quality pre-screened deal flow, along with the tools for successful angel investing – cooperative due diligence, a powerful business network, and relevant, timely education.
