Viveca Morris is a joint-degree student at the Yale School of Management and Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies. She’s worked as a partner operations manager for First Round Capital, a venture capital firm that invests in seed-stage technology companies, and as a strategy advisor for New Crop Capital, a venture capital firm that invests in alternatives to animal proteins. She received a BA from Yale College in 2015.
Viveca is interested in using business and technology as levers to help build a more humane world for animals and people. She wants to be able, as Amory Lovins puts it, to help move conversations about creative solutions to challenging problems from “it’s impossible” to “here’s how” to “how much will it cost” to “how can we invest.” Viveca is interested in animal intelligence, in protecting animals and preventing cruelty, in the field of network science and its applications, and in the power of storytelling to create change. She co-hosts the Yale podcast "When We Talk About Animals," which explores big questions animals raise about what it means to be human. (http://www.whenwetalkaboutanimals.org)
