Making impact in the green economy
This partnership holds strategic importance for Savant as it aligns with our goals of expanding our impact in the green economy. Our presence at the event allows us to scout for innovative start-ups that can join our portfolio. Thaheer Mullins, partner at Savant comments: “We are constantly seeking to increase our pipeline of green tech, clean tech, and circular economy start-ups. Events like these represent a fantastic opportunity to network and engage with exciting new founders and their ideas.”
We are on the lookout for start-ups that are working on solutions that will impact the green economy. At Savant, we believe that the green economy is of paramount importance due to its potential to address global challenges such as climate change, environmental degradation, resource scarcity and socio-economic inequality. The green economy stimulates innovation, attracts investments and fosters entrepreneurship, contributing to long-term economic growth and prosperity. Thaheer expands; “Green tech start-ups have the potential to make a big impact on the environment. Through the use of green tech and deep tech we believe we will be able to increase the use and efficiency of renewable energy, reduce waste, promote sustainable best practices and change the world for the better. The green economy helps mitigate climate change, protect biodiversity, and preserve natural resources for future generations and we are excited to be working with start-ups that have the potential to make such a big impact.”
