Impact Entrepreneurship
The latest trends and insights on impact entrepreneurship and investing.
“I don’t want your hope. I don’t want you to be hopeful. I want you to panic.” This was Greta Thunberg’s message to the world at the World Economic Forum in Davos.
As protest comes to dominate the language of ‘environmentalism’, we see a growing appetite for change with a new trend blooming: climate change investing.
Private investors are more and more willing to finance cutting-edge technological solutions to climate change, from improving energy efficiency to renewable storage solutions to alternative meat.
On this revue, we focus on how the investment landscape is changing and is incentivizing investors to finance the ecological transition.
This said, we cannot help but wonder: will this growing green appetite be enough?
