What are the UN's Sustainable Development Goals and how can investing help to achieve them? What's the difference between ESG & Impact Investing? What we do as investors matters. Across the different asset classes, we find a spectrum of impact – from negative to positive – that needs to be addressed. The solutions are not clear-cut. We live in a complex world, and while it's easy to blame oil, gas and animal farming for a majority of the emissions, if we were to stop drilling for oil, using gas and herding cattle today, our civilization would collapse tomorrow. A significant amount of people would starve or freeze to death within days. This is why decarbonization require a system-wide transformation.

Keith Daniel and Tom Droege are intentional about funding Black entrepreneurs and bringing more equity to venture capital. They stop by WHERE'S THE FUNDING? to discuss inequalities in the VC ecosystem, whether the VC model is suitable for Black entrepreneurs, and what they are doing to create access to funding for Black founders.Through Resilient Ventures, the co-founders, have built a reputation of action and integrity. Their early-stage venture fund exists to show that VC can be a good model for Black founders if it is done differently, and by differently they mean more equitably. Black entrepreneurs often do not have the opportunity or privilege to raise friends and family rounds and often grow slower (despite being in business for a while) because they do not have the opportunity to raise funding to scale and grow.

A giant wave of purpose-driven founders, coupled with consumers raising interest in the environment, and the availability of climate-focused capital, should enable a rosy future for the climate tech sector,  said Madelene Larsson, an investor at Giant Ventures.London-headquartered Giant Ventures has invested in some 20 companies and plans to invest a billion dollars over 2020s. It had just started to raise its second fund when we recorded the podcast in late May 2022.**A few key takeaways from Madelene Larsson:**Of course, it was a better environment to raise the fund before we saw the market pullback that we're currently seeing. We're not going to shy away from that. But we do hope there is fundamental support for purpose-led technology and climate tech. Right. So we are kind of progressing well with our fundraising. **I think this was sure increasing focus on the sector. And when investors start to focus on the sector, you also kind of automatically see more startups in the space, and, you know, people are coming up with new ideas because they see that the funding is there. **I think climate tech is quite a hot space at the moment. And there's for sure, you know, a lot of capital following that sector. So you see a fair amount of startups trying to greenify, if you will, are trying to be maybe more climate-friendly than they are.**I think there are some big opportunities to be had in-home electrification and kind of EV enablement. As I mentioned, I think consumers will be pushed to kind of going green, and they will be more affordable going green than it kind of has ever done before. **

Great Time For Deep Tech Investing With Outsized Ventures

Startups should focus on their cash burn and seek to build a 36-month runway as the downturn in markets and economies has started, but it's a great time to be investing in deep tech as founders are increasingly keen to tackle world-changing challenges, Outsized Ventures' general partner Isabel Fox said in an interview on the sidelines of the Latitude59 startup conference in Tallinn in late May 2022.London-headquartered Outsized Ventures is a 2021-founded deep tech investment firm that invests in Seed+ rounds in founders that are going to have a big impact on the world for the better.**A few key takeaways from Isabel Fox:**I think people want to do stuff that's going to have a purpose and an impact. So you're finding more and more great talent wanting to address some of the world's greatest challenges.The first thing you'll see is more founders wanting to find solutions to our problems. So we definitely see an increase in fabulous people trying to work through whether that's carbon counting, whether it's sustainability projects, which they think can get off the ground. **I still think more money will come into the area. It sort of leads with the quality of the founders and the ideas, and what they're trying to build, and the money will be there for great founders, as you know, and I think that's starting to happen. But we need to obviously speed up what we're doing in order to save our planet.**You definitely hear from corporates that they're looking at it. But I don't think many of them actually even have a strategy. They're working through the plans with the consultants, and when you start to look at the costs of going carbon neutral by 2030, they've got to make a significant investment to get there. Of which I see sort of the start, but I'm probably like you: I'm not seeing them make that full, big commitment of quite a few 100 million, in some cases to sort of drive that. So I think, I think it will be right, I think there'll be panic right at the end. And people then want to sort of see how they can get out of it, rather than necessarily fulfill that obligation.**So my advice to founders has been: to watch the cash burn, get prudent on that, and try to increase your runway to 36 months. So you have the luxury of time, and hopefully, the world may have stabilized sooner than we think. I think being tight, and being focused is not a bad thing. I always think that it's about being savvy, it's about being prudent and nimble. **I think the stuff that we're backing and the stuff that you like are big plays that have a huge impact on the future of society. That's not going to change much. For me, actually, in deep tech, I think it's a great time to be investing. We still got the problems in the world; we still need to solve them. And these opportunities are so huge that even if we have a bad two-year period now in the macro economy, they're going to come through the other side, very, very strong.

Daffy makes it so much easier to put money aside for charity. You can make your tax deductible contributions all at once. Or you can set aside a little each week or month. Then anytime in the future, you can give to more than one and a half million charities, schools, and faith-based organizations in a matter of seconds. So you can separate the decision to give (and get your tax deduction) from deciding exactly which organization you want to support and when. My favorite part is that you can invest your contributions to your Daffy account so they can grow tax-free to let you have even more impact in the future. To start giving today and get your free $25 to give to the charity of your choice, go to allthehacks.com/daffy Athletic GreensAthletic Greens is a foundational nutrition drink designed to remove the friction from covering the daily nutritional needs of a modern diet.
