a story of innovation built on a foundation of entrepreneurship

We set out in 2016 to fix what was wrong with clean technology investing. 

 

Fast-forward five years, we continue to build the future alongside our partners.

our beliefs

Asset 10.png

There is no silver bullet

Meeting global climate commitments requires innovation & transformation across every single sector – along with the creation of a few new ones.

Asset 12.png

Scale will win the day

We have learned from Cleantech 1.0… scale wins. The best technology is not enough – engaging the industrial and infrastructure base unlocks scale.

Asset 11.png

The future looks radically different 

The future energy economy will not look like the present. Making strong investments requires managing market, regulatory, and operational uncertainty.

Innovation = Software + Hardware

The best solutions will offer both hardware and software advances – including
new materials, process design & automation, and unique business models.

our journey

Founded in 2016 with a 10-year commitment from our partners, Evok Innovations was built around a mission of protecting the environment and strengthening the economy.

Driven by global momentum toward a net zero future, Evok has established itself as a leader in industrial innovation and decarbonization - including next-generation sectors such as hydrogen and carbon capture.

Building on our legacy, Evok continues to accelerate the energy transition with our team of technologists, company builders, and investors.

Business Building

We have personally built 5 businesses from the ground-up and scaled them to success. We’ve been in our entrepreneurs' shoes. 

>$100MM first-of-a-kind recycling & carbon capture facilities? No problem. We’ve been there, done that.

First-of-a-Kind Projects

our investments

Number 1.png

Carbon Capture+

A low carbon economy is virtually inconceivable without massive quantities of carbon capture, utilization, and storage. 


From point sources, and the atmosphere directly. 

Number 2.png

Low Carbon Fuels

The energy density and infrastructure compatibility of traditional fuels is hard to beat.


We need low-carbon alternatives – hydrogen, bio- and synthetic liquids, & ammonia. 

Number 3.png

Clean Energy & Grid

Electrifying everything is the leading wave of the transition to a low carbon economy.
 

Intimately dependent on a power grid – 24/7, clean electrons, everywhere – non-existent today. 

Number 4.png

Mobility Solutions

Alongside a changing energy landscape comes an evolving mobility landscape. 


From electrification to connected solutions to service-based models – the future is changing.

Number 5.png

Industrial Innovation

Today’s industrial base holds the keys to a clean energy economy, tomorrow.


Digital technologies, ubiquitous artificial intelligence, and low carbon industry are calling.

Number 6.png

Materials & Circularity

Better materials, and better use of materials, are foundational pillars of an evolved economy.
 

Innovation across materials manufacturing, synthesis, & circularity will accelerate the transition.
