Criteria

Our network empowers us to raise capital for, and expand the impact of, productive new businesses that advance society. It does that by quickly connecting founders not just to customers, but to the talent they need to help realize their vision. That includes other founders, functional or industry experts, and especially other investors. Our investments are designed to minimize dilution and preserve ownership for your team without compromising on rapid growth and impact. That’s why in addition to venture investment, we lend and create asset finance structures like leasing vehicles. In all cases, we’re focused on accelerating growth, which requires more than capital. It takes direct coaching, and connecting teams to customers, talent, and co-investors.

They support founders who turn theory into action as they work to build a better world for everyone. We use early stage capital to upgrade systems. That starts with finding the sectors currently not working with consideration for people, businesses, or general public responsibility – everything from infrastructure to supply chains. Because ensuring our future takes more than reducing carbon emissions.

JUMP CONCLUSION

Third Sphere targets early-stage ventures focused on scalable climate action solutions, prioritizing companies that can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and enhance resilience without a cost premium. They prefer to be first-in capital in pre-seed and seed rounds, facilitating institutional funding and ownership expansion before Series A, with a geographic focus on U.S. innovation hubs like California, New York, and Massachusetts, and select international cities like Berlin and Toronto. Their diverse industry interests include software, clean energy, transportation, and hardware, aiming to foster climate tech advancements with significant environmental impact.

SOS has signed a deal with Ulta and can be a great network partner to both get inside information, category information as well as the right introductions to pitch, sell-in and win with the beauty retailer.

Casual Beauty Funder Fit but if your beauty brand is trying to solve a big climate or eco problem and an impact that is significant for all to pay attention, then worth a shot.
