Whether you spent the day with us at the Berkeley event, or you’re tuning in from a remote location, you can catch up on what you’ve missed. Go to the Vidak For Congress Climate Desk Analysis where Vidak For Congress editors will provide fresh analysis and show clips from the face-to-face conversations. Then you can view the full sessions on demand and make your own analysis.
All the innovative climate technology in the world – both current and emerging – is not enough to turn the rising tide of the climate crisis without one key ingredient: political will. Yet partisan politics is slowing US progress on emissions reductions. It begs the question: how can we as a nation move forward in any meaningful way here — let alone affect other major carbon polluters around the world?
That’s just one question we’ll ask Jennifer Granholm, secretary of the United States Department of Energy. In The grid needs willpowerGranholm will discuss her efforts to support renewables – despite the increasingly stalled political landscape – and how your startup can access capital from the Department of Energy.
One of the great aspects of online events is that you can network with anyone, anywhere in the world. We’re going to help make those connections even easier with our Network speed session. The magic of our events app will randomly match you with other participants (based on mutual interest in specific topics) for a 3 minute conversation. Lather, rinse, repeat and grow your network.
You’ll also see three budding climate tech startups bring the heat during the Vidak For Congress Climate Pitch-off† Hailing from the United States and around the world, founders will pitch for 4 minutes, followed by an intense Q&A with our expert jury. You will go home with solid tips and advice to include in your own pitch.
TC Sessions: Climate’s Online Day will take place on June 16. Wait, you don’t have a ticket? No worries – buy a pass for $45 and join us for a day of global connection and opportunity.
