The bottom line

Continuing on with our coverage of TechNZ’s Innovation Forum, we talk to Stephen Tindall to find out more about his venture capital company, K1W1. The company has been pioneering an array of clean tech ventures, most notably with Lanzatech who recently secured a deal to work with China’s largest steel and iron conglomerate, Baosteel, and the prestigious Chinese Academy of Sciences, to commercialise its fuel ethanol producing technology.

Tindall discusses the business case for clean tech, describing it as a double win—why not use capital and innovation to clean up waste and combat global warming, and make some money at the same time?
