Back to Team page

Barnabe Geis is the Director of Programs at the Centre for Social Innovation where he designs and runs programs that grow startups and organizations with a social and/or environmental purpose. He leads Climate Ventures: an incubator, coworking space, and a range of programs that support entrepreneurs, innovators, and leaders working on climate solutions. He is an Ariane de Rothschild Fellow, an Impact Film Lab Emerging Filmmaker, and holds a Masters in Journalism from Columbia University. Once an avid traveller, he was a social entrepreneur in the Middle East, and backpacked over land through Lebanon, Syria, Turkey, Iraq, and Iran. When not working, you’ll find him somewhere in nature, perhaps freediving in a lake.
