Greater Boston is known as a hub for climate-tech companies. And in the last few years, the entrepreneurs in the field have raised their game. They’re looking beyond the challenge of building electric vehicles — they’re thinking about how to ensure widespread adoption by making charging easier and more affordable. They’re using 3D printing to replace carbon-intensive manufacturing processes. And, they’re supporting other cleantech companies, helping them raise the capital they need to succeed.
The amount of venture capital invested in climate-tech companies has soared over the last two years, according to Pitchbook, despite a slowdown in early 2023 alongside the rest of the VC ecosystem.
