Hub Stories: Ex-Firefighter Crunches Numbers to Stop Climate Change

[Name]: Dermot Hikisch
[Areas of Expertise]: Corporate sustainability, Third party evaluation, Business Development, Forest Ecology

[Memory Lane]:

“One of my earliest memories is from a hot summer in Canada, where there was a major forest fire that broke out twenty miles from my parent’s house.

Hub San Francisco Weekly Roll Up: Reboot for Summer

Hey Hubbers

You may have noticed an absence in last week’s Roll Up…my apologies. I had a bit of family time down in the tropics, but don’t worry, I was thinking of you the whole time!

The fog out my window tells me that the SF summer is upon us! Thus, there are quite a few young new faces around the space. Though many of you more experienced Hubbers will be taking a bit of a holiday yourselves, I would encourage you to reach out to the next generation of social entrepreneurs. There is much to learn on both sides. Continue reading
