Nth Power invests in companies with high growth potential addressing large market opportunities with a proprietary technology or service that meets a significant unmet customer need. We look for opportunities where we can leverage the industry expertise of the Nth Power team and our industry partners. In reviewing potential investments, Nth Power looks for:
- Resourceful management teams that know technology and think, speak and act in market and profit terms

Ideal businesses have progressed beyond the proof-of-concept, R&D and "seed" funding stages and are on the threshold of introducing commercial products. Nth Power’s initial investment typically ranges from $1-5 million and Nth Power often makes further investments over time. Nth Power receives and reviews business plans from more than 500 energy-related businesses each year and will normally invest in 3 - 6 of these companies.
