Marrakech Express: Bridging the Climate Innovation Gap with Strategic Philanthropic Investments (Webinar)

Rather than bemoan venture capitalists’ lack of interest in early stage innovation to tackle climate change, Sarah Kearney and her PRIME Coalition have set out to show VCs and other investors how it an be done. As the follow-up to last year’s Paris climate accords approaches (in Marrakech Nov. 7-18), PRIME’s model caught the eye of
