What can entrepreneurs do about the climate crisis (that corporates can’t)
Tuesday 28 September 2021, 2.00pm to 2.50pm BST
Over the last two years, the “climate tech” field has gone from the fringes to the centre of venture investment. Kara Swisher of CNBC proposes that the world’s first trillionaire will be a climate entrepreneur. Is applying “venture logic” around scaling and red-blooded capitalism “trying to solve a problem with the same kind of thinking that created it?” Or is there something fundamental to solving the net-zero challenge within the work of entrepreneurs?
