Proterra was founded in 2004 by Dale Hill. In July 2019, Reuters reported that the company had “hired investment banks to prepare for an initial public offering (IPO), according to people familiar with the matter” and adding that “the timing of the IPO depended on market conditions.” These comments should not be interpreted to mean that the company is formally pursuing or foregoing an IPO.

Proterra designs and manufactures zero-emission transit busses. The company has raised approximately $520 million in Venture Capital funding from investors including BMW iVentures, G2VP, Hercules Capital, Tao Capital Partners, GM Ventures, Kleiner Perkins, and Franklin Templeton Investments. Per company press releases, Proterra last raised $155 million in September 2018 at a post-money valuation of $855 million.
