#Cleantechers, this Thursday at 2:30 EST, we’ll host the 5th Quarterly Cleantech Podcasters Roundtable.

We Talk With a Cleantech “OC,” Investor Graham Richard - Scaling Clean Ep. 7

2 min. read

We describe this show as a podcast for clean economy CEOs, investors and the people who advise them. As both an investor and an advisor, Graham has a foot in two of those categories. But he’s also one of the few people in cleantech who have served in elected office. Mayor Graham Richard served the city of Ft. Wayne, Indiana from 2000-2007 before taking the reins at Advanced Energy Economy to advocate for pro-sustainability policies.

Graham is now a senior advisor at the San Francisco-based investment fund, Finite, a perch that gives him a window into a number of leadership teams. But he was involved in clean energy long before it was cool. Graham is a cleantech “OC,” (“Original Cleantecher”) who installed the floorboards on which many of us now stand.

Here are the highlights of our conversation with Graham.

4.) they build a trusting environment

5.) a digital-based platform that can scale
