Investing like a Poker Player at Spark Festival

Professional poker players have developed a number of strategies to optimize their financial returns from playing hands with uncertain outcomes that are revealed over time.

This sounds a lot like early stage venture capital investing. The future of a startup is initially uncertain, and gets clearer over time as the company succeeds or not. Can VC investors optimize their returns by following poker player strategies, including small antes to see each hand, discrimination on which hands to invest further on, and large raises on hands that develop well?

Net-Zero Startups: Early stage investing in a carbon-constrained world

Net-zero emissions refers to an equilibrium where we would add no more greenhouse gases (GHGs) to the atmosphere than we could remove from it, a balancing act that we will need to achieve if we are to stabilize the earth’s temperature. In this context, how should early-stage investors assess their portfolio’s exposure to climate risks – particularly in the case of startup companies when little may be known about the potential climate impacts of new technologies, products, or business models? And what should startups do to determine whether they are on a path to net-zero?

Sébastien Raoux, is an award-winning, internationally recognized expert and impact entrepreneur with unique depth of knowledge in environmental science, clean technologies, emissions inventories, the green economy, and international climate and energy finance, law, and policy.
