The FCT Summit brings together industry experts, leaders, and investors to discuss opportunities & challenges in the rapidly expanding ClimateTech industry and will feature their second cohort of incredible early stage ClimateTech companies. The Summit will consist of themed panels, sessions, and fireside chats for the climate community to engage in discussions focused on renewable energy, carbontech, water, mobility, and more.
Join Elemental Excelerator at the panel, “Building a Pipeline for Top Talent.” This panel discussion will focus on the need and opportunity for the climate ecosystem to continue building, attracting and advancing a sustainable pipeline of diverse, driven, and talented individuals propelling ClimateTech solutions forward. What have been successful models and approaches to date? Where are there gaps? How can the way we fund and invest in the ecosystem and founders advance these goals? Join Kamal Kapadia, co-founder of Terra.do alongside Alekhya Mukkavilli, a member of the Finance team at ClimateWorks Foundation to reflect on the challenges inherent to identifying top talent and providing opportunities for individuals of all backgrounds to create an industry that benefits everyone including those disproportionately impacted by the climate crisis.
