My Third Derivative Mission

Everyone at Third Derivative (D3) is committed to tackling the climate crisis. But we’ve got more personal reasons for being here, too. Here are just a few highlights:

"My individual mission at D3 is to help foster rigorous, global, and inclusive climate entrepreneurship. For now, if I could help scale even a single climate mitigation technology company that can reach gigaton-scale impact, I would consider it a success. "

Chetan Krishna
Transportation Sector Lead

"My mission at D3 is to bring an African perspective to global enterprise development that unlocks sustainable and climate-friendly business and social solutions to our present day challenges and positively impacts future generations."

Busie Pholi
Ecosystem Success Associate

"Researching emerging technologies is a really optimistic place to work in the energy transition. Every day I get to grapple with new ideas that have the potential to transform the economy. Even if some of the ideas fail, many are full of hope and possibility."
