The future of humanity itself is at stake, and this is the thesis that underlies TC Sessions: Climate 2022 (presented by Extreme Tech Challenge), taking place in person on June 14 at UC Berkeley’s Zellerbach Auditorium in Berkeley, Calif. – with an online event to follow on June 16.
It will take tremendous effort by visionary thinkers, policy makers and investors across all sectors to halt, and then reverse, the toll of climate change on our planet. We need to encourage a strong group of these visionaries to continue this vital work, which means we are committed to keeping this event affordable for students.
College students and recent graduates: Buy a student pass for $45 at TC: Climate 2022 sessions – a savings of $305. Come meet and learn from some of the most creative founders, CEOs, VCs, institutional scientists, researchers and engineers in climate technology.
We’ll have a full day of panel discussions, one-on-one interviews, interactive breakout sessions with Q&As, and small expert-led roundtables where you can dive deeper into specific topics.
We’ll be announcing more speakers and topics soon, and in the weeks to come, but here are just two examples. Venture capital investment is essential to advance climate technology. In a presentation, Amy Burr, President of JetBlue Technology Ventures (JTV), will explain why startups need to integrate corporate social responsibility (CSR) and environmental social governance (ESG) policies from day one.
In another, Pae Wu, Partner at SOSV and CTO at IndieBio, will discuss investment trends in climate technologies. Wu is currently focused on funding early-stage climate startups and tracking the trends and timing of hot, climate-specific industries.
