Our innovation engine = your best chance of success


Addressing market ‘blind spots’

We’re set up to address critical climate innovation market gaps overlooked by others, including hardware and hard-science innovation. We’re building a global ecosystem to accept startups from around the world and deploy with corporate partners across markets.

Providing early & follow-on investment

Each startup selected for the accelerator receives an optional $100k convertible note. We also bring $880M+ of follow-on funding available from VC partners interested in software as well as hardware, hard-science, and business model innovation. Partner funds help select and coach startups, getting to know companies much better than a 5-minute demo day pitch.

Flexible and tailored coaching

With an annual cohort of 30–50 startups from around the world, we coach startups on investability, business models, and monetization pathways in a bespoke environment during the accelerator program. Startups work with our corporate and investor partners to guide a curriculum focused on investability at the end of the program.

Strategic corporate partnerships

Our network with global reach can serve as customers; development, manufacturing, and sales partners; investors; and potential acquirers.

Be part of our next cohort.

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