Tackling the climate crisis is a once-in-a-generation, trillion-dollar economic opportunity and the world needs an equitable and global climate innovation engine to identify and massively scale new climate technology solutions that will accelerate the clean energy transition. We built Third Derivative to rise to this opportunity.
If we're going to achieve the speed and scale of change that the world needs to tackle the climate crisis, we have to take startups with the most-promising no-carbon solutions—and then immerse them in a new kind of innovation ecosystem that gives them their best shot at succeeding. That's what Third Derivative will do for dozens of companies at a time. It's a thrill to be building it.
