On #EarthDay this year, let's feel energized by the progress we have made toward a green economy and reflect on how much is still to be done. Investing in sustainability isn’t charity - it’s a viable way forward and 2020, despite its difficulties, is proof positive of that. 🌎

It’s excellent to see the shoring up of our nation’s #cybersecurity vulnerabilities treated as a major priority, as the greatest global threats become increasingly digital. https://wapo.st/2Qa09VD

Pandemic or not, there was no lack of startup funding in 2020 with $143 billion raised, a 12% increase from 2019. Yet, late-stage funding to sole female founders was less than half of what it was last year. #shecession https://bit.ly/2OXlCki

Over 90% of the S&P 500 publish yearly #sustainability reports, yet they often lack the “investor grade” information firms seek. Investors are hungry for real-time, standardized data, and companies that meet this need will likely be rewarded. https://bit.ly/3vVowGC

We’re seeing light at the end of the pandemic tunnel, but will #remotework become the new normal? What will that mean for urban economies when businesses that employ 16 skyscraper floors worth of people no longer require them to commute? https://nyti.ms/3sSVK7P

Consumers feel the pressure to lower their carbon footprints, but are big enterprise polluters really doing enough to take on sustainable practices, or are they simply “greenwashing” their images with good news stories? #sustainability https://bit.ly/31OevNW

Congrats on this exciting news for our new partners at Walnut, led by our Venture Partner and longtime team member, Roshan Patel! #healthcare #impact https://tcrn.ch/39UHe7W

Now that the #SuezCanal has been cleared, let’s pause and ask why and how this “years in the making” crisis, according to @NYTimes, came about and can be avoided in the future. https://nyti.ms/3ue6SMT

We’re proud to invest in BlocPower, a startup with a mission to ensure that clean energy is available in low-income neighborhoods. Founder @DBaird13 knows firsthand the dangers and despair that come with insecure access to reliable heating. https://wapo.st/3wavgR7

We are proud that CityRock Ventures has co-led the #SeriesB financing of @holler_io, a company that embodies the growth, impact, and diversity traits we invest in from the H/L Ventures family. Congrats to @travismontaque and team!

AI’s designers are its teachers, and the technology inherits their biases, unconscious or not. Without a concerted effort towards an inclusive world view, we’ll be cementing societal ills within the algorithms that manage the world around us. https://nyti.ms/3eG2ilT #AI
