Show Notes

Hello everyone and welcome back to CleanTechies the Podcast. This is episode 61.

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 our conversation is with Nicholaus Rohleder. Nick does many things, including teaching at Columbia and running Climate Commodities (a commodity trading and logistics company). Our conversation was one of my favorite conversations since it was very high level and tackled many macro problems. 

We discussed Geo Politics, Globalization/De-globalization, Mining, Mineral Availability, and the unique problems faced by climate tech companies building hardware solutions. 

An all-around great conversation with Nick. Enjoy! 

The Main talking points of today's discussion are:

  • Intro to Nick
  • What they do at CCI
  • The issue they wanted to solve 
  • Off-take and input finance 
  • Clean Mining 
  • Geo-Political climate and the zero-sum mentality of smaller nations 
  • Supply Chain Issues
  • Energy Independence 
  • Education / University Landscape

We hope you enjoy today's episode - please reach out with any specific questions or discussion points. If you're interested in being a show sponsor you can reach me at silasmahner@gmail.com
