We are proud to announce that venture capital firm Sopoong Ventures invested in Capture6 to help us accelerate our direct air capture and water recovery technologies for gigaton scale carbon dioxide removal and climate adaptation.
South Korean VC Sopoong, the first impact capital in the country founded in 2008, supports environmentally-minded tech founders globally. Sopoong focuses on bridging the gap between South Korean conglomerates and startups in the climate sector and has a large footprint across South East Asia. Capture6 has become their first US climate tech startup investment. This support will now enable Capture6 to scale quickly and build large carbon capture facilities to reach gigaton scale within 20 years to meaningfully contribute to combating the climate crisis.
“We are delighted to be working with a partner who shares our values and who is closely aligned with our mission of deploying carbon removal at unprecedented speed and scale.” said Dr. Ethan Cohen-Cole, CEO and co-founder of Capture6.
“Carbon capture is a key climate technology globally required to combat the climate crisis and it is recognized as one of the five key climate tech sectors in South Korea. We are delighted to team up with Capture6 whose solution not only responds to carbon dioxide removal, but also takes into account climate resilience and decarbonization of the industry.” said Max Han, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director at Sopoong Ventures.
