"The next 1,000 unicorns — companies that have a market valuation over a billion dollars — won’t be a search engine, won’t be a media company, they’ll be businesses developing green hydrogen, green agriculture, green steel and green cement" according to Blackrock CEO Larry Flink.That was before the war in the Ukraine. With the new reality that we failed to transition our system in time to cut off fossil energies, the race is on. We see record-high investments in green hydrogen, in EV mobility and much more. As a matter of fact, Europe alone plans to invest more than 33 Billion Euros into ClimateTech R&D until 2027. And while the continent is the worlds largest hub for climate-tech and seed financing, later financing rounds (C,D) are more difficult, especially for hardware start ups. But these are essential to transition to a sustainable energy system. This is why Danijel started the World Fund, which is one of Europe's largest ClimateTech Venture Funds. Danijel talks about their current and future investments, about the need to act as a venture capitalist and still save humankind.

Takeaways:

  1. The urgency about ClimateTech investments
  2. Some trending solutions and startups in the area
  3. How to measure the maximum environmental impact
  4. Why do female founders only receive 1,3% percent of the Capital available in Climate Tech?
