Preqin founder invested €320K in Net Zero Insights to develop market intelligence software for climate tech

Net Zero Insights (formerly Eutopia) was born with the aim to accelerate the adoption of climate technology and the growth of the ecosystem around it. We help decision-makers and financiers to find companies that will help the world move to net zero.

Now we are proud to announce a funding round for Net Zero Insights led by Mark O’Hare, the founder of Preqin, the world’s leading alternative assets database and analytics platform.

This fund raising also has participation from Chris Goodall, respected author on the energy transition, Tony Lent, established entrepreneur and investor in the low carbon transition, and other angel investors.


About Net Zero Insights

Over the past few years, the company has been established to become one of the first market intelligence platforms with exclusive focus on green innovation. Now working with organisations from all sizes and fields, the Net0 Platform is used by investors, corporates, and policy makers to research sustainable innovation and keep up with the investment trends in climate tech. We believe our database is the largest and most comprehensive.

The urgent need for market leaders to bet on climate technologies to meet sustainability goals confirms the value our platform adds to this industry. As our team continues growing, so is our platform coverage, now indexing 30K climate startups from Europe and North America and providing insight into the funding rounds, deals, patents and executive teams in the industry.

The funding will be used to continue to grow our commercial operations, talent capabilities and to further develop our software. During the next few months, new features will be released, providing our clients with more and deeper insights on the climate tech world and delivering an enhanced user experience.


About Mark O’Hare

Mark O’Hare said:

Valhalla invests only in businesses that we understand well and where our experience can support rapid growth. Providing data from private markets about innovative solutions to address climate change is a key enabler of the energy transition and makes excellent business sense.
