Senior Partner, EV Private Equity

Anoop Poddar joined EV in 2017, and in my role as the President of EV’s Houston office, I manage firm’s investment activities in North America. It is an amazing experience to work with committed professionals, both at EV and our portfolio companies, who share the highest level of integrity.

Prior to my current role at EV, I was the founding member and CEO of First Reserve Momentum, a private equity firm with $500 million of capital. I also founded and chaired an angel investor club of Harvard Business School alumni in Houston.

I am passionate about investing in and managing technology-rich companies, especially those that substantially improve operational efficiencies and contribute towards global climate change goals. To date, I have helped build strategic value in 16 technology companies, with nine successful exits, across Europe and North America.

As the energy transition accelerates, my focus has been on electrification-of-mobility, digitalisation of processes, improved efficiency technologies for control of internal environment, grid solutions, geothermal tech and solar farm optimization.
