The firm’s two principals are Ann Partlow and Jim LoGerfo. Neither have been traditional venture capitalists, but both have extensive experience in the cleantech space. Partlow spent 20 years as a financial advisor and portfolio manager for members of the Rockefeller family. This included management of a the Odyssey Fund, a mission-related vehicle that invested in both public and private companies that addressed key social and environmental issues (including energy and water).
LoGerfo is a veteran Wall Street energy analyst, having formed Bank of America’s energy tech I-banking group.
Partlow told me that the firm will probably add a junior investment pro later this year. She declined to discuss fundraising.
