ADB Launches Video Series on Climate Technology and Entrepreneurship

ADB Ventures has launched a new video series called Climatic about the innovators who are reducing Asia’s carbon footprint, the entrepreneurs who are making the region more resilient to climate change and the corporate leaders who are partnering with startups for impact. The series will be broadcast on YouTube.  

Climatic is made possible by a grant from Climate Investment Funds’ Clean Technology Fund Program. Linh Thai, a seasoned venture capital investor and judge on Shark Tank Vietnam, hosts the series.  

Each of the four Climatic series will feature two episodes dedicated to a theme, beginning with smart construction. In one episode, viewers will be able to watch as entrepreneurs pitch their businesses to environmentally conscious investors. The series will also feature a talk show episode where investors and industry experts will discuss how green technologies can scale across Asia’s emerging markets. By modelling successful business models and highlighting opportunities for technologies to scale commercially, Climatic aims to inspire more innovation, entrepreneurship, and investment for climate mitigation and adaptation across the Asia-Pacific region.
