Building the Sustainable Startups of the Future

Mar 13, 2022

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

Sustainability is finally finding a place squarely at the heart of U.S. federal policy. With the growing climate focus in government and more consumers looking to do business with brands that align with their environmental values, major companies now have sustainability firmly on their radar. Naturally, startups want to follow suit. But proving sustainability efforts are more than lip service is easier said than done. Revolution Growth Partner Todd Klein will moderate a conversation on how to build next-generation companies and the steps entrepreneurs can take to demonstrate that they’re on the right track when it comes to sustainability. Panelists include SparkCharge CEO and founder Josh Aviv, Good Buy Gear CEO & cofounder Kristin Langenfeld, and Cava CEO & cofounder Brett Schulman.
