Chris Sacca is the co-founder and managing partner of Lowercarbon Capital and an accomplished venture investor, company advisor, and entrepreneur, managing a portfolio of startups through his firm Lowercase Capital. Alongside his wife Crystal, Sacca built Lowercase around very early-stage investments in transformational technology companies like Twitter, Uber, Instagram, Twilio, Docker, Optimizely, and Stripe. He retired in 2017 to focus on healing the climate, restoring American democracy, promoting diversity within technology and venture capital, and reforming the criminal justice system.
Sacca came out of retirement to head up the science and investing team at Lowercarbon Capital, which is pursuing ambitious solutions to the climate crisis through innovation in energy, building materials, transportation, food, industrial chemicals, reforestation, and more. Lowercarbon aims to demonstrate that focusing on climate solutions is simply good business.
Before setting out as an investor, Sacca served as Head of Special Initiatives at Google. Earlier in his career, he was an attorney at Fenwick & West, where he handled venture capital, mergers and acquisitions, and licensing transactions for technology and research companies.
