This just in: Marie Kondo has "kinda given up" on keeping her home tidy. That means you can "kinda give up" on that job you hate and apply for a new social impact job instead.

Why Climate Startups are the GOAT

Today’s story makes us jump for joy and shout hallelujah like we’re back at church camp. It’s an underdog story at its finest, and the best part is that it’s great for anyone who wants to apply for a social impact job (cough *you* cough).


Okay, here it is: in the midst of the recession and layoffs in the tech industry, there is one type of business that’s still thriving: climate startups.


Essentially, businesses that focus on climate change solutions are seeing a ton of momentum right now, which is great for people who want a career in social impact with more job stability than Henry Cavill had at DC.

Here are some fancy stats and info released by the NYT:

  • Climate startups raised almost $20 billion in the US in 2022
  • Worldwide, at least 83 climate-focused companies are worth over one billion dollars, with more on the way
  • Climate tech is considered a bright spot in this economy and is credited for being recession-resistant

Of course, we have to point out that the reason for the momentum is that climate disasters have increased and we could be on the brink of a Thanos-like extinction event any day now (like how we jumped from DC to Marvel with more grace than Ryan Reynolds?).

But despite dire circumstances, we’re still celebrating the fact that climate startups are thriving in the midst of the utter chaos happening in the tech industry. If you find yourself looking for a new career, be the superhero we actually need and apply for an Impact Job!
