Wes set out to prove that you can indeed do both things by investing in

mission-driven startups.

Ep.#62 Wes Selke @ Better Ventures. - Tech4Climate Podcast by Startup

Basecamp

PART 1: Meet the investor

Today we are speaking with Wes Selke, Founder Partner @ Better Ventures.

Better Ventures is an Oakland-based, early-stage venture firm that

backs mission-driven founders that are leveraging emerging technologies

and break-through science to solve big problems in the world from

climate to health to economic opportunity.

It was a pleasure to talk to Wes who has been investing in

mission-driven startups for over a decade. Over the course of his

career, he has gained particular insight into synbio and how it will

play a crucial role in decarbonizing our industries. He gives us a deep

dive into how economic growth is compatible with sustainability and

reducing global emissions, and what role synbio can play.

Part 2: My Secret Sauce

In the second part of the show, Wes clues us into what framework he uses

to assess the “je ne sais quoi” of the founders he invests in. He also

provides his tips on what he does to really keep a clear mind and

work-life balance.

🚨 OUR COMMITMENT🚨

When we reach 1000 subscribers we will plant 1000 trees with our

partners.🌱

Help us to reach this 1st goal.
