Our Team

Jared O’Shaughnessy

Partnerships Analyst

In the spirit of going far together, it is critical that we build richer and deeper connections throughout the entire climate ecosystem, from the R&D labs and garages where innovation bubbles through the cracks, up to the biggest and most influential corporations whose moves are felt at a societal scale. Most importantly, these connections don’t just yield mutual benefits for both the corporates and the startups, but also unlock positive externalities for people and the planet as we steadily and equitably rein in climate change.
