Allison Myers

Allison Myers

General Partner
Co-Founder

Business exec. & entrepreneur with a passion for bold climate solutions.

The Buoyant team has deep expertise in energy transition and supporting ambitious startups that are tackling existential climate issues. They have been invaluable in connecting us with financiers and asset owners in the utility-scale solar ecosystem, so we can power their digital transformations and build and maintain more solar assets.”
Nikhil Vadhavkar
CEO, Raptor Maps
The team at Buoyant is far more than your typical VC. Even before the docs were finalized, they got heavily involved in helping with lead generation, partner introductions, and strategy alignment. Invaluable at board meetings, and always ready to review investor materials, as well as refine messaging and provide feedback on all aspects of the business. Couldn't be happier to have them on my team.”
Alexander Gershenson
CEO, SupplyShift
We are so grateful for the Buoyant team's commitment to supporting Beni! They played a huge role in syndicating our round, bringing in new investors and helping us structure our approach. We could not have had a successful (and oversubscribed) round without them. I am excited to continue to work with Amy & Allison as fellow female leaders in climate tech.”
Sarah Pinner
Co-Founder & CEO, Beni
Amy and the team at Buoyant have brought invaluable knowledge of the US climate space to FloodFlash. This has been vital as our business has expanded to a new continent from our beginnings in Europe. I feel Amy’s support in the boardroom where she is a clear and challenging voice of leadership, and in the market as a source of new leads, information, and customers.”
