ClimateRaise

ClimateRaise

Hannah's passion and work are at the intersection of climate, community, and supporting women. She is the co-founder of ClimateRaise, a volunteer-led organization that connects active investors with the leading women-led climate tech startups. Previously she was the Program Director for Techstars Sustainability Accelerator in partnership with the Nature Conservancy based in CO.

This group of women entrepreneurs and investors finds and promotes great women-led climate startups. Inspiration for ClimateRaise came when investors told them that they “couldn’t find any women entrepreneurs” and the ClimateRaise co-founders immediately came back with an initial list of 80 women. That idea turned into the ClimateRaise newsletter where they provide an ongoing list of vetted women-led companies open to investment opportunities. Now they work to curate their list of women entrepreneurs, promote them, and also to provide introductions that can bring these startups to life.

Clean Earth Rovers

Clean Earth Rovers

Michael Arens started Clean Earth Rovers in 2019 after two years of work and development on The Plastics Piranha to pursue his dreams of building a cleaner, more sustainable, tomorrow for himself and for generations to come. Ocean Plastic is one of the biggest issues we face as a society and Micahel believes that using sustainable and autonomous technology will be the key to fighting the ocean plastic crisis.

At Clean Earth Rovers we have this call to action of "creating a better future for generations to come" I think at a large scale this means creating cleaner healthier waterways that can continue to be powerhouse sources of Carbon absorbers. With marine debris and Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) much of the ocean's ability to house healthy ecosystems is at stake. With our technology we envision clean water free of human waste, both litter and runoff. We also envision booming ecosystems restored to their health benefiting fisheries, biodiversity, and the oceans ability to help us in carbon caption.
