Shownotes

It takes a village to empower founders tackling Climate Change”. Discover how Elemental Excelerator is bringing an enormous contribution into it.

Part 1: Meet the Investor:

In today’s episode, we are speaking with Kim Baker, Director of Innovation at Elemental Excelerator, a global program supporting early stage Climate Tech founders. I was excited to have Kim on the show and learn more about how the all Elemental team is on a mission to redesign the systems at the root of climate change. So far they invested in over 100 growth-stage companies and celebrated more than a dozen exits, funded more than 70 technology projects, and built a platform for scaling equitable, market-driven solutions to climate change. Kim will share with you her overview of the ClimateTech ecosystems today, Where we are at and what needs to happen to ensure the ClimateTech ecosystems can fully support the 2050 Net Zero Goal. She will cover with you in detail how Elemental selects and supports founders with their different initiatives in place.

Finally, Kim will  share how they evaluate impact in companies they support with their programs.  

Part 2: My secret sauce:

In the second part of the show, Kim will give her secret sauce for founders seeking to fundraise. Then, Kim will cover the challenges that she sees for ClimateTech teams seeking to scale and go global. Finally she will give her insights on how she maintains a healthy work life balance as a mother, an investor and or founder.
