Climate Returns Episode 2: Sarah Tavel of Benchmark
Climate Returns is a livestream interview series where we discuss sustainability and climate tech investing with world-class investors.

Sarah Tavel joins us for our second Climate Returns episode to discuss the evolving interest in climate tech investing. Sarah joined Benchmark in 2017 as a General Partner and invests in consumer businesses with a focus on marketplaces and social. She was one of the first 30 employees at Pinterest, joining after co-leading Pinterest's Series A investment while at Bessemer Venture Partners. Lurking in her investment history is an investment in CPower, one of the original Demand Response providers. In the upcoming discussion, we will explore Sarah's history and views on climate tech investing.

Abe Yokell, Managing Partner of Congruent Ventures, will host this episode. He and Sarah will talk about:

• Is Benchmark spending time in climate tech and sustainability?
• How will shifts in consumer sentiment on climate affect venture investment?
• What can investors learn from the last climate innovation cycle?
• What themes within sustainability are interesting to Benchmark?
• How is the mainstream venture community viewing the rise of climate investing?

Upon registration you will be added to the Congruent Ventures mailing list.
