Learn more about Lithium-Ion storage and how impact investors can get involved.
Major advances have been made in lithium-battery technology over the past two decades by the discovery of new materials and designs through intuitive approaches, experimental and predictive reasoning, and meticulous control of surface structures and chemical reactions. Further improvements in energy density of factors of two to three may yet be achievable for current day lithium-ion systems. The global lithium-ion battery market size surpassed USD 40 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to grow at over 15% through 2026. The surging demand for electric vehicles owing to the ongoing concerns toward increasing pollution levels will positively impact the lithium-ion battery industry growth. The automotive segment accounted for the majority of the market share in 2019.
To stay ahead of this market growth, investors need to better understand innovative battery technologies. This Boundless webinar will be moderated by Michele Demers who is CEO and Founder of Boundless Impact Research & Analytics and will feature expert Dr. Kent Griffith, and Rob Anstey CEO and Founder of GDI Inc, which is developing industry-leading high energy density electrodes for super-capacitors. Additionally, Fernanda Avila Swinburn, Senior Research Analyst at Boundless, will discuss the Boundless climate screen tool, and how we applied it to GDI.

The Government of Kenya, through its Kenya Youth Employment Opportunities Project, World Bank and Intellecap are excited to invite you to their virtual launch event of Future Bora Innovation Challenge.In Kenya, vulnerable and under-served youth population groups – such as orphans, youths from vulnerable and marginalized communities, persons with disabilities, youths affected by conflict, single mothers, and street youths- are even more adversely affected by the challenges of unemployment as they are unable to participate and benefit from mainstream employment interventions. These youth groups face obstacles that are unique to their environments such as stigmatization and misconceptions, sole childcare responsibilities, lack of mentorship, and limited access to adaptive learning.The Future Bora Innovation Challenge aims to expand economic opportunities for these vulnerable and under-served Kenyan youth by supporting organizations that have interventions that are tailored to the local and highly specific needs of these youth groups. The Innovation Challenge will support selected three organizations to scale their interventions through grant support of KSH 40 Mn for each, paired with advisory & mentoring support over a period of six months.Time: 11 AM EAT – 1:00 PM EAT / 4 AM EDT – 6 AM EDT
