Shaping the future is hard

Shaping the future is hard. How can we transform an economy that works within our planetary boundaries?

We are facing monumental challenges to transform our old economy towards a climate positive economy. We are in an all-hands-on-deck situation, it will require cooperation between venture capital, politics, and industries to achieve this. This is especially true for hardware investments, which are still heavily underfunded.

We are moving too slowly. Today's tedious financing and political processes don’t pay justice to the monumental challenges we are facing in the transformation towards a climate-positive economy. We will discuss the necessary solutions and why we need more capital for hardware and deeptech startups to shape an economy that operates with our planetary boundaries.

With this session we hope to give motivation and inspiration to hardware and deep tech startups.
