What’s the Great Unwind all about?

I’m Dai Ellis, an entrepreneur and executive coach to climate tech startup founders. I’ll be writing here periodically about the emerging carbon dioxide removal industry and the fascinating questions that arise as we try to kickstart a trillion-dollar industry from scratch. Ocean CDR is a particular zone of curiosity.

My perspectives draw on my weird career path, including a long stretch leading the Clinton Foundation’s work to scale up HIV/AIDS treatment globally and pioneer the discipline of “market shaping” for health products across the developing world.

I also geek out about all the people aspects of building ventures—leadership, management, conflict, culture—and write about that jazz over here.
