Ion Yadigaroglu

As the founder of Capricorn Ventures, the largest cleantech VC in the world, Ion Yadigaroglu is one of the strongest champions of the power of green technology, and a firm believer in the ability of innovative commercial breakthroughs to solve the difficult problems of today’s world. An early investor in Tesla and SpaceX, he knows which horses to back. This year he has been active on Twitter, sharing amongst other things news of the continuing divestment we are seeing from fossil fuels. He also knows when people should get out. And his company successfully raised a sizeable new fund (closed December 2017).
