Adam Slavney is the CEO and co-founder of Pascal, a company that is developing a novel class of solid refrigerants to transform the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) industry. Slavney earned his Ph.D. in chemistry from Stanford University in 2019 and previously held a postdoctoral fellowship at the Harvard University Center for the Environment, where he worked in Jarad Mason’s laboratory. Slavney is a chemist and materials scientist who makes and studies porous materials for the capture, storage, and chemical transformation of environmentally important gases Pascal’s solid refrigerants operate in the same pressure range as gaseous refrigerants but with zero global warming potential. This technology can unlock increased energy-efficiency at reduced system sizes, paving the way for next-generation heating and cooling solutions. The company recently raised $15 million in Series A funding to expand its product offerings and accelerate growth.


One piece of advice to Venturing@Harvard


"Don't assume that because you are the technical person that you should not be CEO. No one understands what the technology can accomplish better than you and that's often exactly what the CEO needs to know."
