The Chrysalix EVC team is one of the largest technical groups in the
industry with over 120 combined years of work experience in the energy
industry and over 120 years in the venture capital business. Adding to
that are our educational backgrounds in laser physics, material science,
mechanical engineering, biochemistry, economics, and business. We have
built power plants, run venture-backed startups, taken companies public,
and built strategic partnerships around the globe enabling us to work
“in the trenches” with our entrepreneurs as they need us – and as long
as they need us.
At Chrysalix EVC, we have developed a culture that
embraces independent thought, encourages commitment to entrepreneurs,
and promotes open and honest communication. We take an “active”
management approach with our investments and believe that together, we
will build the clean energy giants of the future.
