Building an early-stage GreenTech startup

GreenTech is something that is on top of everybody's minds; the space is booming with investors and incubators trying to attract the most promising startups. It has grown from being something that is nice to have to a burgeoning investment opportunity. There is an increasing pressure on boards to be more receptive and proactive to the sustainability agenda. A growing amount of venture capital is invested into the field, and pursuing business ideas within GreenTech has become a tremendous economic opportunity. 

But what is it like to start a company and build in this field? Is pursuing a GreenTech startup still associated with balancing profit and purpose? How can we encourage more entrepreneurs to build in this space?

We have invited entrepreneurs who have built a GreenTech startup to share their experience in navigating and becoming successful in this field. 

Panelists:

Tegan Spinner, Co-founder, and CEO of Worthmore.

Jose “Pepe” Tavares, Co-founder and CEO of Zupply.

Michael J. Wiatr is a Venture Partner with Antler.

Moderator - Julia Nilsson Senior Platform manager at Antler.
