Rob Day, Greentech VC, Looking Back on 2011 Cleantech Investing Predictions

I predicted this for 2010. It didn't really happen. But I continue to speak with both LP-backed and non-traditional VCs and PE players who see the need. So I'll double down for the prediction for 2011. And what I'm talking about is the emergence of new models that combine project finance and venture capital; that take innovative approaches to the use of debt and equity combined; and/or investment into the kinds of business models (like services, etc.) that VCs have typically had a hard time backing." Ditto this year. In particular, at my firm, we have started doing this, but nevertheless, it didn't really happen as a broad sectoral trend. Score: +0.
