    Pivotal Investments I, LP is an early stage venture capital fund committed to delivering superior financial returns through investments in companies, primarily in the Northwest, that will be leaders in the emerging sustainable economy. Pivotal's partners founded the Sustainability Investment Fund in 2007 to target the clean energy, clean air, clean water, green building, materials/biomass, and healthy food sectors in Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, and Western Canada. Portfolio companies must have a reduced environmental footprint, innovative product or technology, low cost producer or service provider, large growth opportunity, and experienced management. A key element of the fund is the network of over 60 knowledgeable, 'on the ground' domain experts and resources in the Northwest that invested in this fund.
