Funding radical startups addressing climate change with Natel Energy and Breakthrough Energy Ventures

Gia Schneider raised $65 million on the road to unlock distributed hydro resources. In July 2021, Libby Wayman from Breakthrough Energy Ventures led Natel Energy’s $20 million Series B, and on June 8, 2022, the two industry leaders are speaking on TechCrunch Live. We’ll take a look at Natel Energy’s early pitch deck, and hear how Schneider won over Wayman’s firm. This episode comes ahead of TechCrunch’s inaugural in-person event: TechCrunch Sessions: Climate.
