“Gigaton-sized Problems and Gigaton-sized Solutions”

Tisha Schuller sits down with Emily Reichert, CEO of Greentown Labs, the largest cleantech incubator in North America. Tisha and Emily discuss how cleantech and oil & gas can team up to solve pressing issues in energy: decarbonization, climate change, and racial equity and justice.

In today’s episode, we dive into:

  • Greentown Labs’ expansion into Houston, Texas
  • Leading on the fronts of racial equity and justice
  • How cleantech and oil and gas ideas are greater than the sum of their parts

Emily is currently the CEO of Greentown Labs, assuming the role in 2013. Emily previously served as a Senior Scientist at the consulting firm Arthur D. Little, Director of Business Operations at the Warner Babcock Institute for Green Chemistry, and an MIT Sloan Fellow in Innovation and Global Leadership. Emily holds an MBA from MIT’s Sloan School of Management, a Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and a B.S. in Chemistry from the University of California-Redlands.
