Andrew Smith, Executive Director of Greenbackers Investment Capital, joins Alex to explore their success in matching investors to the right decarbonisation tech with true commercial potential. They talk about how to reverse engineer Net Zero by 2050 and how much of it requires new business models vs new tech. They also explore the role that CVCs, VCs & PE play best. Listen in to find out about the characteristics of strong start up leadership teams, what industrials need to ensure they bring to early-stage projects and the role for policymakers in supporting market adoption of new tech.
