About the course
Winter 2021 course description coming soon!
Stanford Climate Ventures (SCV) is a unique project-based course that provides Stanford students with a platform and educational/experiential framework to develop, launch, and successfully build high-impact new clean-tech and climate-tech ventures. In the Fall 2020 quarter, SCV will be held as a 1 hour per week seminar series entitled "Big Ideas & White Space in Climate-Tech Entrepreneurship". The purpose of this seminar series is to 1) educate students on the key elements of the most important high greenhouse gas impact problems in climate-tech and white spaces in those problem areas that are ripe for new company explorations, and 2) incubate high-potential new company creation concepts for future project-focused Stanford Climate Ventures quarters. Seminars will be delivered by instructors and outside industry and academic climate-tech experts.
Because of coronavirus restrictions, the Fall 2020 version of SCV will be slightly different from the traditional SCV experience. We will be resuming the project-based, traditional SCV experience during Winter 2021.
Since 2016, Stanford Climate Ventures has been the launchpad for 45 distinct projects, resulting in 25 new companies. These companies have raised over $46.5M in funding to pursue further development, and SCV companies can be found in 9 different countries on 5 different continents.
Stanford Climate Ventures is led by two Precourt Energy Scholars with decades of energy technology, business, and policy expertise:
- David Danielson: managing director of Breakthrough Energy Ventures, former assistant secretary of energy efficiency and renewable energy at the U.S. Department of Energy (email@example.com)
- Joel Moxley: founder of Foro Energy and Rho AI; founding investor at Zero Mass Water, Rubicon Global, and Pie Insurance (firstname.lastname@example.org)
They will help with idea formation and creation of interdisciplinary teams who research, analyze and develop detailed launch plans for high-impact ventures in the context of a new energy development framework offered in this course.
