Founded in 2021 by Andy Sparks
, Blue Dot is a company at the intersection of executive coaching and addressing climate change. You can read a detailed post with our backstory here.
The short story is that Andy spent a decade in San Francisco building two companies, Mattermark and Holloway, as the COO and CEO respectively, and eventually transitioned to a new career as a coach to startup founders.
Then, in September of 2020, Andy woke up a view of San Francisco (shown here) that looked more like Blade Runner than a blue dot. That day prompted Andy to research more about climate change and left him concluding that we're likey to see >3°C warming in our lifetime.
After considering going back to school or starting a climate-focused company, Andy decided to shift his coaching practice toward entrepreneurs addressing climate change. While we love working primarily with climate founders, we're also open to working with leaders who share our values and belief that together we can build a better future.
