I just co-hosted a Scaling Climate Tech salon this week with the fantastic Meera Clark and was thrilled with the incredible interest from founders (leading to a massive waitlist).
Tech workers and investors are flocking to start-ups that aim to combat climate change.
When I jumped 2.5 years ago from Freestyle to Climactic with Raj Kapoor, I hoped my relationships with the founders I’d previously backed while at Freestyle would continue but it was truly the great unknown.
Raj Kapoor joins Drew to talk about the inspiration and new purpose he found from his experience contracting and surviving COVID-19.
Climate tech founders often come from non-operator backgrounds– nonprofits, academia, or research, to name a few. While their engineering skills might be world-class, transitioning into a sales role, particularly with enterprise clients, can present a unique challenge.
Raj Kapoor talks about how a mindset of curiosity led him to where is today and how the team at Lyft are challenging our assumptions about transportation.
