JOIN OUR EFFORTS TO

reinvent markets to better serve the environment

BY LAUNCHING COMPANIES.
Mo Niknafs, Founding Analyst for Negative Emissions Markets at DSV
In order to avoid the catastrophic effects of climate change, massive deployment of negative emissions technologies (NETs) will be needed alongside decarbonisation (displacing and abating use of fossil fuels). Though these technologies exist, very few people are willing to pay to take excess CO2 from the air and return it to the ground. Evidently, in order to accelerate the deployment of NETs, market-end innovations are required. More generally, market-end innovations are required to accelerate decarbonisation and the transition to a net-zero economy. How might we create a Central Carbon Bank? How might we redesign markets to have the environment at their core? Your mission is to determine which of these innovations have the greatest potential to accelerate the transition to net-zero, and then to build the companies that will take us there.

 

 

ABOUT YOU
You are driven by the mission to transition to net-zero as fast as possible. You are determined to build a company that benefits humanity. You are collaborative, committed to your teammates, and able to communicate clearly. You are comfortable challenging and being challenged. You are comfortable working and iterating quickly, and find uncertainty exciting rather than daunting. Going up steep learning curves excites you. You bring a mix of technical expertise in a related field (see below), are entrepreneurial at your core, always asking why to get to first principles, highly creative in your solutions and actively enjoy building network, both of peers and more senior, around the problems and opportunities that you go after.

 

You have a practical ability in at least one of the following:

●  Mathematics, statistics

●  AI/ML, data science

●  General software engineering

●  Blockchain

●  Financial modelling

●  Policy innovation

●  Governmental environmental policy

●  Corporate environmental policy

●  Financial instrument design

●  Carbon markets (especially EU ETS)

●  Climate law

●  Contract law

 

OUR OFFER
An opportunity to co-found a company and receive pre-seed investment within three months of joining. We’ll work closely with you on venture de-risking and make sure there’s the right team (including advisors), funding and commercial traction in place before spinning-out.
At DSV, we have partnerships with some of the world’s leading companies in the industry to support our teams working on transition to clean fuels. There’s up to £500k of investment, and at least £100k in grant funding, plus the further opportunity to carry out 6 figure industrial proof of concept work.
No prior idea or IP required.

About Mo

Mo is looking for ways to accelerate the rate at which NETs are being deployed. He has spent the past few months gaining an understanding of the fundamental roadblocks in this domain, and deriving approaches to overcome them. He’s now assembling the founding teams that will build the companies that will overcome the problems in this space.
