Prudhvi is an experienced AI lead and has been working with non-profits in conservation for years. After graduating from IIT Kharagpur, he worked in many tech startups before working on policies to put a price on carbon. He is also the co-founder of ReWorld.
ReWorld's commitment is to make biodiversity conservation accessible to everyone. They support leading climate and conservation organizations, by creating a technology platform that allows individuals to select and preserve acres of forest for the next 20 years. The organization uses a unique economic model based on carbon credits, where the reforested land generates credits that can be sold to fund the maintenance of the forest. In just six months, ReWorld has raised $350,000 and gained endorsements from renowned conservationist Jane Goodall, showcasing the potential impact of their work.
Listen in to learn about how the organization is operating on a tight deadline to acquire a property in Colombia, how they are limited by time constraints, layoffs in sustainability teams, the difficulties of fundraising, and how they are actively seeking partnerships with corporations and foundations that align with their mission, plus much more.
