Our season finale covers startup investments that are on the absolute cutting edge. We’re joined by Maryanna Saenko, an early-stage venture capitalist and the Co-founder of Future Ventures (early investors in SpaceX, Tesla, Neuralink, Planet, and Skype).  Backing visionaries for over two decades through her firm, Maryanna gets to play a part in technology that ranges from Bee Immunology to Nuclear Fusion. She’s also worked on lunar rovers, martian landers, driverless cars, and long-range low-frequency communication systems.  

On the show, we cover ‘frontier tech’ and companies in the portfolio at Future Ventures. We also got to reference all of my favorite sci-fi movies (some of which it seems like Maryanna is trying to bring to life) and we even talked about poetry in our rapid-fire round!

ClimateTech with Kentaro is produced by our incredible team at Persefoni and Hueman Group Media.
