Harnessing Urban Innovation to Drive Social Impact
In this episode, Chante Harris and I address a topic that is all too often overlooked and misunderstood. The issue is public and private investment in infrastructure and innovation that may not yield short term impact and profits but are key to the future of our cities and quality of life. Chante is uniquely positioned to address this and other issues as a go-to-market strategist, Venture Partner at Republic, and renowned influencer and advocate for smart cities, urban innovation, and social impact. Chante makes some incredibly important points about the need, inevitably, and opportunities for smart city transformation. I am going to have her back as a guest in the near future, as 30 minutes was not nearly enough but the best episodes are the ones that leave you wanting more!
A political breath of fresh air: A conversation about bipartisan cooperation and Climate Change
Today's guest is, unfortunately, an endangered species, or at least the political equivalent of one! She is truly bipartisan, measured and nuanced in her opinions, and is full of the type of conviction that is balanced with intellectual humility. My guest today on Raising Your Antenna is Heather Reams, Executive Director of Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions. In that role, Heather is spearheading National Clean Energy Week 2020, a weeklong event that urges Americans of all walks of life to consider the impact that clean energy has in their communities, and to help advance a future powered by clean energy technologies.
Pushing the Boundaries of Sustainable Finance
When we think about sustainable finance, we tend to focus on the capital needs for renewable energy products, green bonds, and carbon trading and credits. While these are all key components of sustainable finance, they do not begin to tell the full sustainable finance story.
On today’s episode, I speak with Nicole Andersen, Managing Partner of Redsand Ventures. Redsand specializes in innovation strategy, investment and venture creation for companies that are pushing the boundaries of sustainable finance.
The Power and Influence of Sustainable Finance in Mitigating Climate Change
