    Founded in 2008, Navitas Capital is a sector-based venture capital firm within the cleantech sector. Navitas Capital's investment focus is unique among VCs -- dedicated to working with entrepreneurs who are developing innovative building materials and technologies for a sustainable built environment. The phrase 'built environment' refers to the entire inventory of man-made buildings and the infrastructure which supports and connects them ($1.3 trillion market) -- including: offices, homes, schools, hospitals, hotels, public buildings, airports, streets, sidewalks, parks, parking structures, expressways, bridges, railroads and waterways. Navitas Capital is looking for businesses: with significant process or technology innovation; 'breakthrough' products with a cost point comparable to or more favorable than an existing product and/or solution on a first cost basis; companies positioned to see significant growth, both domestically and internationally; products that are organic to the construction channel and customer behavior, thus accelerating adoption. Navitas Capital is looking for businesses with significant relative 'value' in the LEED Building Rating System today, or in the future.
