They also have extensive experience in managing and growing startup teams, and are deeply passionate about building diverse, inclusive working environments.
Oli has a deep passion for all things climate, and prior to New Wave, spent three years working full time on climate-related projects of all flavours, from finance to soil health, carbon accounting to clean aviation, and this led them to Carbon13, where New Wave was born.
