I have been involved in cleantech as an investor since 2002 (Nanosolar, Solazyme, Zeachem) and was an internet pioneer starting in 1994 (America Online, Brightmail, Linkedin, Zynga).I will explain how companies like AirBnB, Zipcar, Mosaic and others are already improving efficiency and reducing the need for fossil fuels, water, food, land, and other resources.
