End-to-end investor engagement


Robust dealflow

We source an annual cohort of 30–50 of the world's best startups. Investor partners participate in due diligence, selection, and coaching, providing them with much better dealflow insight than a 5-minute demo day pitch.

Streamlined investment opportunities

Each startup selected for the accelerator receives an optional $100k convertible note. We also bring $880M+ of follow-on funding available from investor partners interested in software as well as hardware, hard-science, and business model innovation.

Maximizing startups’ potential

We coach startups on investability, business models, and monetization pathways in a bespoke environment during the accelerator program. Regulatory and market insights from Rocky Mountain Institute provide unparalleled expert context too-often missing from other programs.

Addressing billion-dollar markets

Our global network of corporate partners can serve as customers; as development, manufacturing, and sales partners; and as co-investors and acquirers. This gives startups and your investments their best shot at reaching scale.

Become an investor partner.

Because together, we can accelerate the rate of climate innovation.
