CITY LIGHT INVESTS EARLY IN IMPACTFUL COMPANIES
Solutions where more revenue equals better lives at scale, every time.
This focus is driven by our beliefs
Opportunity should be universal
Climate change is a global crisis that must be addressed
No one should be made to feel unsafe
We must bring an end to gun violence
Everyone should have access to high-quality, affordable:
Clean air + water | Power | Real food | Education | Care options
These problems are complex and intertwined — there is no silver bullet
New solutions can also create new vulnerabilities — we need to constantly consider both
Private markets can and will play a meaningful role in addressing these truths
WE ARE NOT ALONE ON THIS JOURNEY
Our goal should be to partner with those aiming to enable these beliefs – entrepreneurs, teachers, first responders, non-profits, politicians, etc. are all our fellow travelers.
We only invest in companies where there is a direct relationship between financial outcomes and measurable social impact.
For City Light companies, the primary impact comes from their core products or solutions.
How they make money is how they have impact
