S4 Ep9: Blackhorn Ventures’ Approach to Supporting Climate Tech

Earth’s resources are running low, so how do you choose the smart software and digital investments that maximize productivity and deployment of climate technologies?

Micah Kotch is an investor at Blackhorn Ventures, the early-stage venture capital firm investing in digital solutions that accelerate the energy transition and tackle other problems, too. .

Nick and Micah talk grid resiliency and alternatives to fossil fuels, the high caliber of breakthrough ideas coming through, and discuss where investors are getting over their skis just a little bit.

Plus you’ll hear Micah’s predictions on the number of unicorns finding their way into the climate tech space and why we’re going to see way more action at federal level when it comes to mitigating climate change.
