A new brand identity that reflects our ambition

Scaling impactful innovation in clean technology requires leadership and collaboration. With a shared desire to see tomorrow’s companies grow today and with the goal of making a greater impact on society, the members of the innovative Cycle Capital family – Cycle Capital Investment, Cycle Momentum, and Cycle Central – have decided to more clearly express their collaboration and history by unveiling a unique brand image:

Since Cycle Capital’s inception in 2009, our team has been actively contributing to the development of a fostering ecosystem for clean technology. As we enter an era of economic decarbonization and inclusivity, the time has come to affirm our beliefs through a new brand image that demonstrates our organizations’ shared approach. We continue to convene even more partners to collaborate with us in scaling a green economy that addresses humanity’s most important ecological challenges.

The launch of this new brand energizes the entire team and launches a new chapter for the growth and impact of our business that is aligned with the next phase of development of our international impact investing platform and global cleantech innovation engine.
