The SOSV Climate Tech Summit—Exploring the emerging startup ecosystem

The venture capital firm SOSV is hosting a free, global, and virtual event, the SOSV Climate Tech Summit, on Oct. 20-21. The summit will bring together top investors, founders, and scientists to discuss climate tech as an emerging category for startups and venture investing. Our goal is to deepen venture, academic, corporate, and media understanding of the accomplishments and potential of startups in climate tech.

Human and planetary health is a key mission at SOSV, and we believe that this mission includes educating the startup ecosystem on how best to take on the emerging climate tech category. The summit follows the launch of the SOSV Climate Tech 100 list, published earlier this year and noted by TechCrunch, which established SOSV as a leading pre-seed and early stage investor in climate tech. In five months, the SOSV Climate Tech 100 startups value has grown by 44% and 25 startups on the list raised new funding.The largest contributors to the jump in valuation were major raises at NotCo, Formlabs, and R-Zero

Programming for the SOSV Climate Tech Summit is based on our extensive networks and expertise on many areas of climate tech—thanks to our IndieBio and HAX programs—and more than 750 investors in our Climate Tech 100 companies. That said, we are incorporating many speakers from outside SOSV’s portfolio and co-investor network. We are also offering dedicated breakout sessions to major early stage climate tech investing groups. Here is the Agenda, which includes Bill Gates, Dr. Jennifer Gerbi, Vinod Khosla, Bill Gross, Tony Fadell, Gabriel Kra, Uma Valeti, Katie Rae, and many more.

More details about the show:

  • Programming format: Moderated fireside chats and small panel discussions. Moderators are subject matter experts and journalists, as mutually agreed with speakers. All sessions will be pre-recorded 1-2 weeks before the event, although there will be live components and interactions. All sessions will be available after the event on-demand via YouTube.
  • Audience: SOSV will market the event extensively through its own channels and with partners.
  • Platform: The event is being produced on the industry-leading Hopin platform
  • Registration link: https://hopin.com/events/sosv-climate-tech-summit-2021
  • Producer: Ned Desmond, the former COO at TechCrunch, and now Senior Operating Partner at SOSV, will lead this production. He has produced in-person and virtual events all over the world.
