Impact Investment to Accelerate Climate Solutions
Virya, LLC invests nimbly in ventures with high potential impact on eliminating global greenhouse gas emissions or sequestering CO2. We invest across electricity, industry, agriculture, and waste systems. Our hope is to find things that wouldn’t happen nearly as fast without our investment, and to get involved as a supportive partner of each company – helping to tell its story or raise future investment rounds. We accept high risk and we vet each company with a focus on whether, if proven and scaled, it could achieve at least a gigaton of emissions impact per year in the next couple decades.
