Living Carbon

In order to limit warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels, we need to reduce our global emissions and remove excess carbon in the atmosphere. Living Carbon is a biotech company specializing in enhancing plants to capture and store more CO2. We developed the world’s first plant for carbon removal, a photosynthesis-enhanced tree, that we're now deploying as part of reforestation projects on degraded lands in the US.

Transition to Climate Tech

When I decided to make the transition to "climate", I spent a couple of months researching what problem I wanted to solve. There are plenty of resources out there, and below I list a few that helped me navigate the space and make more of a top-down decision.

📚 Books: How to Avoid a Climate Disaster, Speed & Scale, Project Drawdown
📈 Accelerators: YC, Elemental Accelerator, Third Derivative
🗞️ Reading: Mental model for combating climate change, CDR Primer, Climate Tech VC
🎧 Podcasts: My Climate Journey
👥 Communities: Work on Climate, Climate Draft
💻 Courses:, Airminers
💰 Investors: Lowercarbon Capital, Breakthrough Energy, Voyager Ventures, Frontier

Office hours
Many people were kind enough to respond to my (cold) messages and emails and answer my questions. As an experiment for the next few months, I'm opening up a couple of hours every month to chat with anyone interested in making the transition to climate tech. Schedule a call here.
