PVG Joins the UNC Clean Tech Summit
Yesterday, PVG’s co-founder Tony Curnes joined a panel at the UNC Clean Tech Summit to present to industry leaders, participants and students on trends in climate tech investing. Fellow panelists were Victoria Beasley of Prelude Ventures, RD Gauss of Global Infrastructure Partners and Meredith Bandy of Albemarle, moderated by Ajulo Othow of Carolina Solar Services. Key topics discussed included the importance of human capital in the fight against climate change, the imperative to electrify everything as a mitigation strategy and the ideal role of government in helping clean technology to scale.
Among the many topics discussed that are worth highlighting, we’d like to focus on one here – the imperative for more human talent, both young and experienced, to join the fight against climate change. The climate tech ecosystem has now matured to the point where almost any functional role is available within the ecosystem in both for-profit and not-for-profit contexts – from hardware and software engineering, to marketing, to product design, to journalism, to investing and fundraising, just to name a few. There is an incredible opportunity right now to deploy one’s functional skills and areas of expertise toward a fight that will be decades-long and is of critical importance to the future of humanity. So, if you aren’t already – join the fight! We are hiring and so are many of our clients. Reach out to us to learn more.
