Every month we bring you a roundup that will help you be your boldest, most creative self, and embrace changes that make you shine.

"Sustainability is the new Computer Science"

"Sustainability is the new Computer Science": These words from Daniel Ahn at Clearvision Ventures rang in my ears during my recent exploration at Stanford's Doerr School of Sustainability.

Against the backdrop of news reports and Tweets (Xeets?) about the hottest July on record, I saw firsthand how our world is at a transformative juncture while walking around the University campus.

From the groundbreaking Stanford University Central Energy Facility to the integrated curriculum at the intersection of climate x tech x business x sustainability, this isn't just about new risks but enormous opportunities.

And, yes, as Founders, we need resilience and a sustainability mindset. And that starts with focusing on the power of adaptation through hope.

Keep reading for a spotlight on success, exciting details on our new in-person event, July's most popular resources, quizzes, and how to work together.
