Ep 3. Evan Hynes, CEO and Co-Founder of Climatebase | Climate tech | Environmental Science
By Nick Van Osdol
Capital investment is great but it’s not enough for climate tech companies to scale. Climatebase is building a platform focused on providing human investment and the timing couldn’t be better.
Last year more venture capital dollars were invested in climate tech than ever before and every startup founder knows once the capital is secured, your attention turns to talent. Equipping your company with the very best people, whether that’s hardware engineers or those on the frontline installing solar panels, the search can be arduous.
That’s where Climatebase comes in, a platform with thousands of climate tech jobs and used by more than 350,000 people.
In the third of the Keep Cool Show’s mini-series, offering six startup founders the chance to pitch their climate tech business. Nick and an investor co-host will figure out what drives Evan, how the company is tackling climate change, and what sets his business apart from others in the space.
You’ll also hear Evan’s views on creating a deep data moat, the company’s genesis story and zoom out on where he sees climate tech heading over the next decade.
With over $40,000 in prizes for their business, there’s a lot at stake. Listen to our fourth founder’s pitch on next week’s episode.
