Dr. Mariana Bozesan interviews:
Tess Mateo

Dear friends,

Did you know that according to recent research[i] solar, wind and batteries (SWB) can become the cheapest source of electricity by 2030? They will deliver almost three times more energy than the current U.S. grid.

This is good, because according to the latest measurement,[ii] the atmospheric CO2 is rising and was 417.27 ppm on April 7, 2021 (compared with April 2020 that was 416.96 ppm; compared with 25 years ago, which was 360 ppm; and compared with 250 years ago, it was an estimated 250 ppm.) 

The Obliteration of Dirty Energy is Near – Get out quickly!

The virtual obliteration of coal, gas and nuclear energy sources is close, particularly since the production of clean energy through SWBs is nearing null marginal cost. This enables the creation of new industries, business models, value creation, more equitable and resilient societies, and wellbeing abundance. 

This means furthermore, that assets in coal, gas, and nuclear power will become stranded during the current decade and people are well advised to sell their investment in these technologies as soon as possible. Morgan Stanley is predicting that coal will disappear from the power grid in the U.S. by 2033. The Dow Jones U.S. Coal Index has already collapsed by 99% in 2020[iii] (from a high in 2011).

Not only coal! Researchers consider that “a large and rapidly expanding global financial bubble now exists around conventional coal, gas, nuclear, and hydro-power energy assets.[iv]

3 Billion New Minds Coming Online – How Do You Plan to Leverage Them?

The availability of affordable and renewable energy is crucial to fuel the development of and the future of humanity. By 2030, researchers expect to have nearly every person on the planet connected with another. This means that we will soon have access to and additional 3 billion new minds and potential entrepreneurs, 50% of which are women. 

Just imagine this additional major force for renewal coming online within the next decade!

What are these minds going to innovate, create, discover, desire, and need? 

We are embarking on the greatest period of innovation, creativity and transformation in the history of humanity. How do you plan to take advantage of it? 

Women Hold Half the Sky

The existential role of women in ensuring the future of life on Earth is unquestionable and has been scientifically proven.

Yet, women and girls are disempowered everywhere!

But there is a way out.

Impact investor and serial-entrepreneur Tess Mateo shows how the Equality Moonshot can be the change we seek. Tess derives her expertise also from two decades of corporate restructuring, and from her advisory experience with the United Nations on Gender and Climate, the Word Business Council for Sustainable Development, and the World Economic Forum.

In this interview, we address questions such as:

  • Why are governments and corporations now seeking to source from women vendors?
  • What are the unique values that women-owned businesses bring to the table that traditional businesses cannot?
  • How do female entrepreneurs accelerate sustainable development?
  • How can the private and public sectors help women-owned businesses scale fast?

Enjoy this very special conversation and share it widely!
