Interactive is our annual gathering of startups and investors in San Francisco. The event will be livestreamed and we’d love for you to join us. You will hear from entrepreneurs in Cohort X who are building innovative companies around the world, deploying technologies to cut GHG emissions, and creating a more inclusive climate tech sector.
Entrepreneurs from Cohort X will take the stage for lightning introductions and audience Q&A. We’ve also curated a few artist performances and on-stage discussions with people building innovative solutions to climate change and social inequity.
