Jack FritzingerHi, I'm Jack. After years working in early stage, fast-paced tech startups, I started questioning the purpose of my work. What difference was I making in the world? I spent the next year traveling the world in search of opportunities to make a bigger impact that was aligned with my values. I found climate tech and haven't looked back.Over the last two years, I worked to strengthen the climate tech entrepreneurial ecosystem. I built programs to help people find their next job in climate, start companies, make investments, and shape policy. I developed educational resources, organized events, and ran workshops to help people take the next step in their climate journeys.Now, with Timberline Strategies, it is my goal to continue this work by supporting organizations who bring a unique approach to addressing climate change and growing the global climate tech community.
