What we're about

ClimateLink's mission is to accelerate the development and deployment of climate action technologies through the combined effects of an online market-network and physical meetups in hub cities around the world. This meetup is about building up the community here in the Bay Area of entrepreneurs, investors, scientists, and all champions of new technologies to improve the livability of our planet.

WHO
Anyone active in sustainability, climate action, technology, science, design, entrepreneurship, investment, and/or resource issues should join!

Are you:
• Working on a sustainability innovation and looking for investment, partners, or customers?
• Interested in working for a company that is doing the above?
• Looking to put money into startups in the trillions-dollar transition to a decarbonized?

If you answered yes to any of the above, you should join this meetup.

WHAT
Monthly meetups will be 90 - 120 minutes in length (plus informal socializing time afterwards) showcasing innovative approaches to solve specific sustainability issues. We'll have 1 - 2 presenters showcasing what they've built, measured or expected results, and where they are going with the technology.

WHERE
We're still figuring out a regular location, but we'll start at one of the WeWork spaces most likely.

WHEN
Right now, we are aiming for the 2nd or 3rd Wednesday of each month for our primary meetup with some flexibility based on what else is going on.

WHY
Climate change is affecting the planet at an increasing pace and startups in our space need to be connected to a different set of capital providers than typical 'VCs'. This meetup and the network behind it is determined to make the right network connections happen and get these innovations to market.

Phone Banking Works — Help CE4B NorCal activate swing voters in key states

Register at https://www.mobilize.us/2020victory/event/323411/ It is hard to process, or put into words, the feeling of watching our state, and now the entire west coast, burn over the last month. The tragedy of the lives lost, homes burned, and lifetime of possessions and memories taken from our neighbors is heartbreaking. We know that climate change is a large factor in the magnitude and timing of these events. We know that our industry has the solutions to mitigate this man-made catastrophe. We know that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris must win the election on November 3rd for our planet to stand a chance. We ask you to join us and act. Help Joe and Kamala win two key swing states: Wisconsin and Arizona. In Wisconsin, we are working with Blue Wave Shorewood to phonebank and ensure that Biden-leaning voters are registered to vote with absentee ballots. The next Weekend of Action is 9/26 & 9/27, with various calling slots throughout the day (9am-12pm Sat only, 12-3pm, 3-6pm, 6-8 pm CDT). All volunteers will be trained in dialer use and Wisconsin registration and absentee voting rules. If you are interested in joining the Wisconsin effort, please reach out directly to the team lead, Phil Metz, at [masked]. In Arizona, we have partnered with the local CE4B chapter to phonebank Saturdays 10am-1pm. You can register here for any of these phonebanks. https://www.mobilize.us/missionforaz/event/320789/ For this Wednesday series to AZ, register at the link at the top, or right here. https://www.mobilize.us/2020victory/event/323411/ If you're curious/skeptical about the effectiveness of phonebanking (like I was), read this article. https://whystatesmatter.sisterdistrict.com/phonebank-its-worth-it-411ca40dfc6b We are also recruiting volunteers, especially lawyers, for the crucial task of Voter Protection as part of the DNC's national efforts to ensure that the right to vote is not infringed, including in keys states like Nevada and Arizona. Message me if you're interested to participate. Each Wednesday starting at 5:30 pm PT, we will hear from a California clean energy champion about the importance of this election and how a Biden-Harris ticket will help California Build Back Better. After our speaker, we will complete a brief training on the Dem Dialer system before jumping on the phone with Arizona voters to ensure the state flips blue in November. All you need to make calls is a phone, computer or tablet, and access to the internet. Thank you for joining us and stay tuned to hear about the speakers planned for each week. A Zoom link will be sent out after you sign up.
