technologies that will
“disrupt” climate change
Nucleation Capital is a new type of venture fund. We raise funds from people like you—investors who care deeply about the planet and understand the power of technology to address those problems—and let you select the terms of your participation. Our investors allocate a small portion of their assets to us to gain greater diversification through access to innovative private ventures creating critical technologies to better manage planetary carbon. We are focused on two main areas:
Advanced Nuclear ventures developing state-of-the-art reactors for reliable, carbon-free and low environmental-impact energy for grid-based and off-grid applications together with a wide array of vertical industrial and supply chain ventures, such as advanced fuels and materials, advanced manufacturing and robotics, software control systems, waste storage or treatment, deployment, operations training, and so on.
Deep Decarbonization ventures such as carbon capture, utilization and sequestration (CCUS) to address CO2 accumulations together with advanced grid Integration ventures and related technologies so that our grid can manage and balance growing demand, distributed generation and energy routing in more sophisticated ways and under an increasing range of environmental stresses and energy demands.
Are you investing according to your values? If not, why not?
Albert Einstein defined insanity as “Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” We have yet to “bend the curve” on our fossil fuel emissions. Maybe it is time to make a change in how you invest! Finally, investors can move their capital out fossil fuels and invest that in a fund making early stage investments in the advanced energy technologies best suited to replace coal, oil and gas.
Are you ready to do something different
with some of your assets to help
protect our future?
There’s finally a way
Nucleation Capital is a subscription-based venture fund. Accredited investors now have the ability to participate in this fund through a quarterly subscription. You select the level of your subscription and the number of quarters you wish to participate in, and you get a pro rata share of the ventures that we invest in for each of those quarters. The more quarters you subscribe to, the more diversified your portfolio will be.
Nuclear innovation isn’t new but for most of the seventy years of its existence, nuclear energy development was done primarily within the national labs. Historically, private investors were unable to participate in the success of those innovations. That has now changed! Exciting innovations are being commercialized by private ventures, just as global awareness that nuclear energy has a critical role to play in decarbonization is growing. Prior to Nucleation Capital—unless you were Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos or Peter Thiel—it was nearly impossible to participate. We are changing that paradigm by pooling investor capital, allying ourselves with a multitude of experts, and doing the leg work to vet and select the ventures and technologies that are most promising and then doing whatever we can to help them succeed. That is our passion and commitment.
Investing with Nucleation Capital
Nucleation Capital is a venture fund and will be investing in young, illiquid ventures with a high risk of failure. Thus, like all venture capital investments, an investment in Nucleation poses a high risk of loss and, unlike publicly-listed securities, can remain illiquid for as long as ten years as young ventures mature. You should not invest if you cannot afford to wait a decade to realize your return or risk the loss of your funds, especially because investing in nuclear energy and deep decarbonization poses even more risks than usual. However, if you are an accredited investor and can afford the higher risks in exchange for the prospects of higher returns, we have adopted a subscription model that allows you to moderate your risk. You get to select an investment level that best suits your portfolio and risk preferences. You can now participate with a subscription starting as low as $5,000 per quarter (although a minimum of $25,000 and four quarters is recommended).
