The Future of Climate Innovation

Mar 16, 2021

10:15am – 11:10am CT

Major corporations like BlackRock, Amazon, and Softbank have made significant climate pledges just as we’re seeing unprecedented wildfires, record-setting summer temperatures and disastrous hurricanes sweep across the nation. On top of this, a pandemic has further underscored the economic and social inequalities stemming from centuries of environmental racism. In a panel with top investors and innovators in the climate tech space Micah Kotch, managing director of URBAN-X, weighs-in on the future of climate innovation, including VC appetite for climate tech, how industries can better leverage new technologies to meet ambitious climate goals and what’s next for this growing technology sector.
