Putting ESG at the Forefront of Early-Stage Development
The world's changed. Today, customers, employees & investors expect the companies they support to influence positive change in the world. That's across environmental, social & cultural factors. In this startup-focused panel discussion, participants across venture capital, finance, legal & marketing will give an overview of ESG then narrow into how startup's can focus on creating foundational benchmarks for tracking ESG standards & communicate those initiatives to customers & investors alike. Then we'll dive into the future state of ESG & what companies like Patagonia and customers like Gen Z are doing to bring social responsibility to the forefront. We'll close with a Q&A from the audience.
