We support the founders out there doing the real work.

Elevation Ventures grew out of a partnership between Sustain SoCal and Octane.

Investments in Seed to Series A climate and sustainability companies, leveraging Octane’s LaunchPad accelerator, staffed by industry experts from Sustain SoCal, help to accelerate progress and amplify impact.

The two organizations recognized that by partnering, we could leverage the strengths of each other’s capabilities and that, together, we could have an immediate and meaningful impact on the climate crisis.

We believe that by helping founder teams access Octane and Sustain SoCal’s tools, networks, and resources, paired with access to capital from Elevation Ventures we’ll be part of deploying the next generation of technologies needed to transition to a more sustainable world.
