Delivering sustainability projects in the developing world

On this episode I’m joined by Sagar Gubbi, Managing Partner at Ecoforge Advisors, who shares the story of Ecoforge and how they are working to enable access to technology and capital in the developing world to combat the impact of Climate Change. Ecoforge works in the developing countries with investors and aid agencies in delivering sustainability projects and ‘forging’ relationships with cleantech entrepreneurs.

Sagar also shares the role of financing arms like the World Bank, IFC and the ADB.

Towards the end he also mentions about the new cleantech fund that Ecoforge is building to help new age cleantech startups bring their idea to the market.
