The inventor of the iPod, the iPhone, and Nest thermostat is focused on making the world a better place for his kids (and all of us) to live. And he’s doing so through Future Shape, his investment and advisory firm—a no-LP fund that has made 200+ investments across the full spectrum, from climate tech to biosciences to energy and manufacturing.
Notable among its many investments, Future Shape has backed more than 50 companies in categories belonging to the “big five” contributors to greenhouse gas emissions: agriculture and food (Modern Meadow), energy (Advano, Universal Hydrogen, Turntide), transportation (WiTricity), manufacturing (Mantle, MycoWorks) and buildings efficiency (Phononic). Fadell is also an early investor in Impossible Foods and a strong believer in the future of bio-manufacturing and connecting everything with electricity.
We’re eager to hear what he believes founders and entrepreneurs can invent next and how they can work toward creating meaningful change.
The SOSV Climate Tech Summit is taking place online on October 20-21. It is a gathering to support Climate Tech innovators and investors across all sectors.
