Eco-friendly startups are popping up everywhere and will save our planet, right?

Reality: "Climate, Energy or Sustainability" is only 2% of this (likely representative) batch. Compare that to 21% for fintech and you'll see investors' true priorities.

@ttiurani venture capitalists priorities are to earn some surplus. who would have thought 😂
