Editor's Note:Last month, we debuted a new channel on CSRwire with Noble Profit to focus on short video interviews with key leaders in the sustainability field. These interviews share insights from corporate leaders who are actually creating profitable sustainable business practices and adopting clean tech, dispelling the myth that zero harm costs more.
Through these conversations, Noble Profit will explore the question of value, providing unique insight into today's trends with inventors, investors, sustainable business experts, and thought leaders. This week's interviewee: Nat Goldhaber, Managing Director, Claremont Creek Ventures.
Venture capitalist Nat Goldhaber believes we are in serious jeapardy of becoming victims to our own need for energy. In this interview, the managing director of Claremont Creek Ventures shares his insights about the future of solar energy, why California's energy policies make it easier to switch from traditional to clean tech, and offers the firm's investment in Clean Power Finance to illustrate how more consumers can switch to clean tech sources at low costs.
Claremont Creek Ventures generally invests in early stage companies with a focus on clean tech and health care IT and also collaborates closely with the University of California, Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley Labs to find new talent for investment.
What role are venture capitalists like Goldhaber playing in weaning us off our dependence on foreign oil? And what does the future look for mainstreamining clean tech?
