Over the past 10 years, the EIT Climate-KIC accelerator programme has been a major climate innovation solution provider, with over 1,500 solutions supported and nearly €1 billion of capital secured.
As we move forward, partnerships are at the forefront of our entrepreneurship programmes. We must harness the full force of a diverse, global, connected community to create the exponential effects we need to unlock systemic change.
Our entrepreneurship pipeline has shifted into multi-stakeholder and transformational programmes. The Climathon programme for citizen activation and ideation first plants the seeds of inspiration. Our incubator, ClimateLaunchpad, then helps innovators turn ideas into climate-positive businesses – we’ve supported over 3,000 of them! Finally, ClimAccelerator scales and accelerates these start-ups through radical collaboration and sharing resources.
