Show Notes

Hello everyone and welcome back to CleanTechies the Podcast. This is episode 51. 

If you are a climate tech founder with specific questions you'd like us to ask -- OR -- looking for capital and strategic partner introductions, please reach out to me via the Slack Channel or LinkedIn and we are glad to help in any way we can.  

Today's conversation is with Demian Klenk, Co-Founder of 6c-Index, where they are building an index fund of Carbon projects that are tied to the blockchain for transparency. 

In this discussion, we covered what they are doing, what are the carbon markets, blockchain's role in the climate fight, seeing carbon offsets as an investment, and a lot of other things surrounding the topic of the intersection of Blockchain and ClimateTech

Overall, great conversation with Demian. I'm very fascinated to see what they do and if they are able to truly crack the code on getting corporations to willingly invest in carbon removal projects.

Main Talking Points: 

  • Intro to Demian
  • Regenerative Markets
  • What is 6c-Index
  • What are Carbon Markets
  • How do they work
  • How the credits appreciate
  • Changing the narrative
