a story of innovation built on a foundation of entrepreneurship
Founded in 2016, Evok combines our own experience as hard-tech founders and operators with talented entrepreneurs to launch the next generation of energy and industrial innovations.
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.
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.
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.
Founded in 2016, Evok Innovations was built around a mission to mitigate climate change by investing in, and supporting, exceptional entrepreneurs with bold visions and innovative technologies.
Driven by global momentum toward a net zero future, Evok’s Fund I - which included carbon capture, electrification, hydrogen, and digital technology - established Evok as a leader in industrial innovation and decarbonization.
Building on this legacy, Evok launched Fund II in 2022, and will continue to accelerate the energy transition with a focus on next-generation sectors such as hydrogen and carbon capture.
We tackle what makes tough-tech, tough.
We deliver technical expertise, experience, and a deep network across >20 distinct climate tech verticals.
We know how to operate in new and evolving markets (e.g., carbon markets, financial instruments).
Scale, Scale, and
Our institutional relationships – across both public and private sectors – inform the strategy and path to scale.
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.
Use, & Storage
A low carbon economy is virtually inconceivable without massive quantities of carbon capture, utilization, and storage.
From point sources, and the atmosphere directly.
The energy density and infrastructure compatibility of traditional fuels is hard to beat.
We need low-carbon alternatives – hydrogen, bio- and synthetic liquids, & ammonia.
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.
Today’s industrial base holds the keys to a clean energy economy, tomorrow.
Digital technologies, ubiquitous artificial intelligence, and low carbon industry are calling.
Minerals play an essential role in the rapidly growing energy transition.
Innovation is required across the mining industry to meet future demand.
We are proud to tackle this mission alongside our partners.
