OUR ZERO CAMPAIGNS
The Stat Zero’s Venture Capital Apprenticeship Program selects a competitive set of emerging and underrepresented fund managers to train and gain experience of the inner workings of a venture capital fund.
Apprentice’s will gain investment experience allocating upwards of $500K-$1M in live deals, develop a network with venture capitalists in the industry, and have the ability to invest with the fund.
WHY we need to focus on zero-POLLUTIon?
Each year 1.2 trillion gallons of untreated sewage, stormwater, and industrial waste are dumped into US water.
While children make up 10% of the world's population, over 40% of the global burden of disease falls on them.
More than 3 million children under age five die annually from environmental factors.
Thesis: The world is experiencing an energy transformation that is being driven by environmental stewardship. Society's desire to manifest environmental stewardship is driving disruption in- and across - electric, gas, water, and air quality domains. We're investing in the Smart Nation Infrastructure, including, but not limited to, Smart Housing, Smart Digital Infrastructure, Smart Metering, and more. We believe the regulatory environment will support new business models.
WHY we need to focus on zero-DISEASE?
Public Health threats are becoming increasingly prevalent and consistent communication and metrics / measurement across communities are needed
Preventative and Primary Care is increasingly difficult for individuals to access due to a variety of factors
Skyrocketing Costs for medication, care, and services
Health Outcomes across the lifespan are negatively affected by increased prevalence of obesity, limited physical activity, lack of clean water, food deserts, and access to care
Lack of Personalized Care for long term disease management
Our Thesis: Redefining aging to help people find the fundamental truths to reach optimal mental, physical, and holistic health as they age. This includes improving access to healthy food, improving public health outreach, reducing barriers to preventative/primary care, using technology to improve reporting mechanisms for physicians, and by approaching healthcare and long term approaches to care through a predictive maintenance angle.
WHY we need to focus on zero-POVERTY?
As of 2015, there were > 860M people living in poverty worldwide, on less than $1.25/day. In the United States, poverty has increased by 30% in all counties between 2016-2018.
Disproportionately affects vulnerable populations: women, people of color, incarcerated, foster children, etc.
Rates will increase globally due to climate change, conflict, and food insecurity if left unaddressed
Governments currently lack infrastructure, policy and innovation necessary to sustainably tackle poverty holistically (root causes & symptoms)
It has become a pressing economic, social, and political issue for public and private sectors
Our Thesis: Poverty is an indicator of a society’s economic, political, social and moral health. It is a complex problem that requires a multifaceted approach. To move the needle on eradicating poverty, we must build safe, resilient smart nations that promote inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment, decent work and equitable education for all.
