I have been honored to champion and invest in impactful startups for more than twenty years - and been a global social entrepreneur myself. While leading the climatetech angel investing community E8 for 4 years, we tripled our community's annual investments with about 20 vetted and diligenced deals a year. A personal investor in startups in EV charging, hydrogen, lithium and more, and client-centric partner to hundreds of entrepreneurs and investors, specializations include pitch coaching, strategy, and business development and storytelling. Social impact measures, impact investing and accessing philanthropic investment capital are as well, having created the Decarbon8 Fund at E8, supported development technologies at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and led several global social businesses. I'm also a recent addition to the venture fund Planetary VC.
