“Dandelion launched from X, Alphabet's "Moonshot" division. When I told Astro Teller, the CEO of X, we'd decided to work with Building Ventures as an investor, he said, "You really can't do better than those guys." He was right. Many investors use other investors' interest as a strong signal of value. Building Ventures stands out as doing due diligence differently. They prioritized getting to know us as a team, seeing how we accepted feedback and how we communicated. I never feel like I have to filter information or "message" to them, because they are genuine in their motivation to do whatever they can help the company succeed. This trust makes the relationship highly productive.
- Kathy Hannun, CEO
Dandelion gives consumers a new, more cost-efficient and environment-effective choice in home heating and cooling. Using the Earth’s natural power, Dandelion brings geothermal home heating and cooling mainstream. The idea spun out of Google X, Alphabet’s research lab with a mission is to make geothermal energy accessible. The team brings together leadership experience from X, SolarCity, Tesla, Sungevity, and Mosaic to disrupt residential HVAC, an industry that has seen very little innovation over the past 100 years.
