Support Innovate Climate
If you enjoy or get value from Innovate Climate, please consider supporting my efforts via Patreon. I spend more time researching, outreaching to, and talking to startups (and investors) than working my full time job. My mission is to help startups create climate impact by helping them connect with the right resources. This passion project has started to take over my life more and more (in a good way), and I’d like to continue doing this, perhaps even full-time.
