The startup has also announced the release of its mobile app, which provides access to climate professionals and hiring managers at major climate tech firms, allowing direct interaction between climate businesses and potential employees. Users can also apply for the platform’s climate fellowship through this app.

The platform’s app allows climate tech hiring managers to host huddles, run Ask Me-Anything (AMA) forums, and engage in conversations with users. Through this platform, potential employees can bypass the process of searching for jobs on specific job boards and applying blindly. In the meantime, companies can build their employer brands and promote their climate solutions within the platform.

Founded in 2020 by Anshuman Bapna, Dr. Kamal Kapadia, and Mayank Jain, Its platform brings together a broad community of professionals from critical climate industries such as energy, mobility, and regenerative agriculture and top experts in areas such as policy, science, and finance.

“The time is now and the climate crisis is not waiting, nor will it fix itself. We are on the precipice of real change-both the industry and talent have woken up to the impacts of the crisis and the hard work that is required. Opportunities abound in every corner of the world and within every aspect of society”, said, Anshuman Bapna, co-founder and CEO of Terra.do.

Several thousand mid-career professionals from more than 25 countries complete the company’s cohort-based learning programs, which range from complete climate landscape overview to deep dives into venture capital investing in climate, climate resilient agriculture, and more.

“The climate crisis will require every aspect of our economy to transform and incorporate sustainability, resulting in the emergence of the climate economy. The current talent funnel for climate- and sustainability trained professionals is broken, creating a large gap that will need to be filled at internet scale. Terra.do’s app and integrated approach, combining learning and jobs and empowered by a strongly engaged community, will enable better outcomes and help each one of us become a climate worker,” said, Anjali Bansal, founder and chairperson of Avaana Capital.
