Podcast by Startup Basecamp


PART 1: Meet the founder:

During this new episode of our Founder Series, we are sitting down with

William Loopesko, Co-founder and CTO of Aclymate. Aclymate (a

Techstars-backed company), is a free and easy carbon accounting software

solution specifically designed for small and medium-sized businesses

who want to address their climate footprint, but don't have time to

become climate experts.



I was excited to speak with William, who has always been passionate

about protecting the environment. Growing up in Colorado, William spent a

lot of his time enjoying the outdoors and wanted to do his part to

protect the natural environment. William began his career as a

hydrologist before realizing that environmental engineering was not the

best way of protecting the planet. After a previous experience as a solo

founder, William co-founded Aclymate in 2021, with the vision to make

it easy and affordable for small businesses to achieve carbon neutrality

by providing an automated carbon footprint calculator and offering

high-quality carbon offsets.


In this episode, we will learn more about the main players and needs in

the carbon-accounting landscape today, the challenges and opportunities

of current carbon-accounting regulations, and how to incentivize

businesses to offset their footprint. We will look at the ins and outs

of carbon accounting, how to find carbon projects, how to calculate

footprints, and how to create a platform that is easy to use for

customers. Finally, we will look at his founder's journey, the

challenges he had to overcome, and the next steps necessary to achieve

his visions. We will conclude the interview with William’s thoughts on

how we can tackle the climate crisis and how you can get involved in the

process.


PART 2: My secret sauce: (AVAILABLE TO MEMBERS ONLY - More info on our

site)


During the second part of the talk, William will give his secret sauce

for early-stage founders looking to fundraise by giving his tips after

graduating from Techstars Sustainability for increasing the odds of

success. Finally, he will share how he has managed to maintain a good

work-life balance as a busy CEO and what he has learned to spend his

energy on to re-energize.
