Shawn Gagne is an environmental scientist and founder of Urban Offsets. Built off of Shawn’s first company, Urban Offsets monetizes a city’s trees by providing carbon credits to locally based companies. Shawn has a knack for bringing together different stakeholders to solve specific problems in our environment. Shawn holds an M.Sc in Environmental Science and has 10 years of environmental consulting experience across North and South America.

Through Triad Startup Lab, Urban Offsets moved into the market validation phase of their business, which helped to test assumptions with real customers. Iteration has followed, and they are now better positioned in the marketplace.
