Ep:#32 Luca Zerbini on unearthing the solution to an unknown climate challenge

Imagine being given the opportunity to make a positive difference to 3 billion people around the world.

Then imagine being told you had 6 weeks to help Malawi present at the High-Level Dialogue for Energy meeting hosted by the UN in New York and bring a voice to these 3 billion people - helping save their lives and work towards decreasing climate change.

Involving the president of the country.

Sounds crazy and a little bit intense, right?

Well, Luca Zerbini was one of the ambitious people that joined the last TIE Accelerator team to help crack this challenge.

He’s the co-founder and Managing Partner of Peak Point Partners, a Venture Capital Fund at the crossroads of Technology, Digitalization, Sustainability and Social Responsibility.

Before this, he was an accomplished consultant at Bain & Company and a C-Suite Executive. He’s an Engineer, and also holds an MBA from Wharton. And is a Fellow of The Marketing Academy and of the Institute for Real Growth – which are both focused on human growth and on purpose-driven leadership, specifically around Sustainability and Social Responsibility.

So it felt fitting to chat with Luca today about his TIE Accelerator experience.

We talk about the UN High Level dialogue for energy meeting, and why it is convening again now after 40 years.

What Malawi’s role is and how the team will be contributing to the success of the discussions.

How, as an investor in this space, he learned things he was shocked he didn’t know about before.

And then tells us the most eye-opening information he learned on this project.

If you are interested in sustainability, climate change, the environment and human rights, then this is a chat you don’t want to miss.
