Natural disasters are becoming an expected norm, from continual record-setting hurricanes in the Gulf Coast to rampant wildfire seasons in the American West. Existential risks like those posed by financial crises and global pandemics have also triggered other disaster events now familiar to nearly everyone alive today. Driven by vision to mitigate negative effects and prevent the worst outcomes of predictable disaster scenarios, some entrepreneurs are pushing the edge to avert future disasters from happening. Lifeboat Ventures proposes to use a venture studio model to fund entrepreneurs whose ideas will help humanity adapt to the ‘new normals’ of 21st century life. Join us to learn how impact entrepreneurs can apply innovation towards stopping the next disaster.
