Over the same time, Steyer was also a partner and investment committee member at Hellman & Friedman, a multi-billion-dollar private equity firm.

In 2012, Steyer stepped away from Farallon to dedicate his time, resources, and energy to mobilizing bold climate action, including to help make California the largest jurisdiction in the world with a 100% clean energy law. 

Steyer also is the founder of NextGen America, the largest youth voter engagement organization in American history, and co-founder of Beneficial State Bank, a triple-bottom-line community development bank focused holistically on justice and sustainability.

Most recently, Steyer was a Democratic presidential candidate and in 2020 served as co-chair for Governor Newsom's Business and Jobs Recovery Task Force. He the then candidate Biden's Climate Engagement Advisory Council to help mobilize climate voters.

Today, he is the co-executive chair of Galvanize Climate Solutions, a climate-focused global investment firm delivering capital and expertise to accelerate the solutions that will define the climate transition and reshape the global economy.
