Climate Tech 101 Panel
April 5, 2022 @ 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM PDT
Climate tech is a wide ranging niche and in this session we’ll try to give an overview of the landscape and some tips around how to “break in” if desired. We’ll answer common questions and your questions through our panel of Product Managers in various areas of climate tech.
## About this event
Designed to help you gain a clearer understanding of the various segments of climate tech, and answer any burning questions you might have! We welcome folks who are curious about Climate Tech, curious about the realm of solutions that people work on, and of course people who are already working in Climate Tech who might be interested in other areas or around to provide their own perspective in the comment section.
This event will be informal, and will start with some networking. A short presentation to provide some background information and then directly into Q&A. Our panel will be moderated with some common questions but we also hope you will bring your curiosity to the event and help us cross a wide range of topics!
## Who should attend
There may be some questions and answers specific to product management, but a lot of information will be widely applicable across roles.
This should be relevant for folks who feel they know nothing about Climate Tech ranging through people who might know one area but be curious about the larger landscape.
