Bill Gates and Breakthrough Energy: Accelerating viability at the SOSV Climate Tech Summit

Bill Gates is the ultimate startup founder, and he’s committed to heading off a climate catastrophe. We are delighted to announce that Bill Gates is a featured speaker at the first SOSV Climate Tech Summit (Oct 20-21). Register today for this free, virtual event. Check out the full agenda.

It came as no surprise in 2015 when Gates launched Breakthrough Energy, a network of investment vehicles, philanthropic initiatives, and policy programs designed to accelerate the clean energy transition. But can the climate tech startups supported by Breakthrough Energy Ventures and others spin up fast enough to “transform virtually every activity in modern life and every major sector of the economy: electricity, agriculture, manufacturing, transportation and buildings” by 2050, as the Breakthrough mission suggests? That’s what we’ll be discussing at with Gates at the SOSV Climate Tech Summit.

SOSV is indebted to Bill Gates’s authoritative book, How to Avoid a Climate Disaster: The Solutions We Have and the Breakthroughs We Need, because it inspired us to dig deep into SOSV’s portfolio to publish the SOSV Climate Tech 100 list, alongside an analysis of their founders and investors. It also inspired us to launch and structure this summit as a gathering of the climate tech ecosystem.

Bill Gates will be speaking at the SOSV Climate Tech Summit on October 20-21. This event is organized by SOSV as a gathering to support Climate Tech innovators and investors across all sectors. Get your free pass now.
