Element 8

Element 8 is a member organization of private, accredited angel investors . Our sole focus is on early-stage cleantech companies.


Element 8 takes a very broad view of what we consider ‘cleantech’ innovation. Our portfolio companies reflect creativity over a wide range of products, services, and market sectors. We recognize it will take a breadth and a depth of vision to solve our environmental and economic challenges, and Element 8 does not limit our search to the obvious or the expected.

If you have a highly promising idea for a more sustainable economy and a cleaner planet, then we’re eager to listen. Element 8 has already invested all around North America in companies working in:

  • Advanced Materials;
  • Bioremediation;
  • Energy Efficiency; Energy Storage;
  • Finance;
  • Green Buildings;
  • Lighting;
  • Real Estate;
  • Renewable Energy;
  • Recycling & Waste Reduction;
  • Smartgrid; Software;
  • Sustainable Agriculture;
  • Transportation;
  • and, Water.

Element 8 is located in the Pacific Northwest, and we welcome and participate in deals from all across the United States and Canada. While we welcome companies with ‘chiseled-in-stone’ term sheets, we are also experienced in leading early stage rounds.

Element 8 works with other angel groups, both regional and national, to maximize deal flow and to syndicate deals when we need to fill out investment rounds. We are a member of the Angel Capital Association, and our members receive complementary access to ACA member restricted content.
