An inside look at 2150 VC’s bet on urban tech to tackle the climate crisis

Quick Summary

To understand where and why 2150 VC is betting, we spoke with partners Jacob Bro and Christian Hernandez about impact investing, regulation and the growing number of funds dedicated to climate tech.

According to venture capitalist Christian Hernandez, who coined the term, a gigacorn is a company that has managed to lower or sequester CO2 emissions by one gigaton per year while being commercially viable.

Hernandez: Policy is an important component of the work that we do, which is why we recently brought on board Christopher Burghardt, an experienced climate tech entrepreneur who has served as head of policy for the likes of First Solar and Uber.
