Our Team

At One Ventures is not a team that sits by. Driven by insatiable curiosity, we geek out over the potential of technologies to tackle environmental challenges. We’re focused, and with that focus comes an energy that we direct into increasing compassion in the world. We care deeply about our founders and our companies. Together, we will heal our planet.
