Happy Earth Day!
Updated: May 4
GAINTECH Capital would be remiss if we let today go by without acknowledging that it is Earth Day. Earth Day officially started in 1970 as the brainchild of Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson and was conceived to be a day to bring greater focus to ecological and environmental awareness. Earth Day has evolved to become the largest secular observance in the world, with billion-plus fellow earthlings marking today as a day of action.
GAINTECH and the GAIN family of companies are proud to be part of an effort that seeks to make every day Earth Day. Our collective mission is to make an impact by investing in and using the technologies that will help us enjoy a cleaner and healthier world. We make it a point, every day, to do our part so that we can enjoy many more Earth Day celebrations for years and generations to come.
Obviously, we still have a long way to go, and we know we can all do better. A day like Earth Day isn’t there to guilt or shame us for what we failed to do, rather, it is there to remind us what we can do and, in a way, allows us to celebrate the little things we may have done during the course of a year to help improve the environment for ourselves and for those we love.
At last week’s NREL Industry Growth Forum event, GAINTECH had the great fortune of seeing some of the amazing technologies that will help shape our environment as well as our future. We met with the inventors, thought leaders, and fellow investors who are all trying to elevate these efforts into the mainstream, to move us away from high waste practices, and push us closer toward a truly circular economy and carbon neutrality.
Even the smallest contribution can have an impact.
