With guest panelists: Catlin Wale, Senior Associate, Counteract; Hampus Jakobsson, General Partner, Pale Blue Dot; Yair Reem, Co-founder of BeyondBlack; and Pippa Gawley, Founder & Director, Zero-Carbon Capital

Climate change will affect and, in some cases, transform every aspect of our lives. The venture capital (VC) industry will not be exempt from this transformation. Learn how it is already adapting and what more needs to be developed for the VC industry to play the role it has historically played in society—backing innovation from a starting point of uncertainty. How will this change affect the skills needed by individual venture capitalists and the competitive landscape of the industry?

Chaired by Naveed Chaudhry, Co-founder & Head of The Greenhouse at the Centre for Climate Change Innovation.
