When serial founder turned venture capitalist Sunil Paul decided to return to startups, it was only after trying to fend off the idea behind his fintech company Spring Free EV for more than a decade. The idea is simple, reduce the initial cost of electric vehicles by charging owners a fee per kilometer driven. And after the California wildfires led to what he called an “orange sky day,” he knew he needed to figure out a way to do more to address the climate crisis, making electric vehicles more accessible to the people who drive the most in the US. . He joins Darrell and Jordan to talk about the end of the world, recruiting as a climate-focused fintech, fundraising, and of course Canada has also popped up a few times.
