Our inspiration

What's behind the name?

Fifty-five million years ago the planet was in a near-runaway state of climate change until the tiny aquatic fern Azolla began to thrive. Azolla drew down nearly half of all atmospheric CO2 and created conditions in which other flora could flourish, reversing climate change and making the earth habitable again. This is known as the Azolla Event.

At Azolla Ventures, we seek to enable a planetary shift of the same magnitude by supporting extraordinary teams to commercialize climate breakthroughs.
