Climate entrepreneurship: lessons from founders with scientific backgrounds

July 9 @ 17:30 - 18:10 BST

Free
Learn from Oliver Weber, CTO and Cofounder of Aed Energy from Cambridge Cohort 4 what it feels like to embark on the entrepreneurial path.

About this event:

Welcome to Carbon13’s webinar for founders with scientific backgrounds who are passionate about climate innovation and want to use their research and knowledge to build a startup to reduce GHG emissions.

Together with CTO and Cofounder of Aed Energy Oliver Weber (from Cambridge Cohort 4), we talk about how the transition from science to entrepreneurship succeeds, the challenges scientists face, but also what scientists bring to the table that enriches entrepreneurship as a whole.

Oliver has a background in industrial R&D driving commercialisation of innovative, world-record efficiency tandem solar cell technology at Oxford PV Ltd. He has expertise in renewable energy technologies, materials sustainability, data science and technology transfer.

Oliver holds a PhD from the University of Bath, Centre for Sustainable Chemical Technologies and has co-authored 16 scientific papers spanning photovoltaics, electrochemistry and renewable fuels.

Our Why:

Carbon13 is a response to the climate emergency. We recognise that despite the increasing number of commitments to net zero emissions, there is still uncertainty on how to deliver. There are existing technologies to deploy but we also require innovation to reinvent the rules and therefore reimagine what is possible.

Carbon13 is not just about investing in a few startups, it is about harnessing the entrepreneurial spirit. That means engaging with academia, business, policy makers, NGOs, consumers, new standards and finance. We need pioneers across the spectrum and that is where our community is critical to the success of our ventures and the transformation we need to see.
