Founder & CEO of Green Places Alex Lassiter is chatting LIVE with the folks of GrepBeat, plus tech reporter Chantal Allam, this Friday.

Raleigh startup Green Places makes sustainability something every business can achieve by simplifying impact and providing easy tools and solutions from climate experts. Launched in 2021, the startup can calculate a company’s carbon footprint in less than 60 seconds and invests in carbon-negative projects on behalf of the company to offset its carbon emissions.

Prior to Green Places, Alex previously co-founded the Atlanta hospitality-industry software startup Gather Technologies, which was acquired in 2017.
