By Dr Brian Moretta


Nick Dimmock founded 350PPM as an incubator for various environmental businesses, but has followed a different path from many incubators. In this episode, he discusses how he developed the 350PPM business model, developing companies more generally and the state of environmental investing.

Amongst other items, Nick discusses:

  • How he developed 350PPM’s business model;
  • The importance of the right system;
  • Balancing doing things for a company versus developing internal capabilities;
  • Handling areas that are capital intensive;
  • Where we are in the demand cycle for environmental investments;
  • How we generate more interest in them;
  • The need for political support and change.

Nick is naturally forthright and brings some strong opinions, which makes for a very interesting conversation.
