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.
On June 11th, the Young Professionals in Energy and ClimateLink will be hosting a panel discussion with various forms of funders about the how, when, and why to secure funding for your sustainability startup.
While bootstrapping may be preferred, some businesses could use additional external capital. From venture capital to government grants to corporate venture capital - the options are countless!
Join us for an evening with fellow sustainability entrepreneurs, funders, and enthusiasts as we navigate the vast funding landscape.
