Accelerating change at speed and scale
With the support of partner organisations, we run theme- and place-based ClimAccelerators in local contexts around the world. These programmes are delivered successfully and autonomously using our open-sourced, proven methodology, shaped over 10+ years of experience.
Once start-ups have successfully completed the programme, EIT Climate-KIC invests in the most promising climate companies that can demonstrate the highest impact potential. We offer select Stage 2 ClimAccelerator start-ups funding and support services in exchange for future equity.
The cycle then repeats with dozens of ClimAccelerators running across the globe every year – propelling a pipeline of start-up development to unleash business solutions at the number, scale and speed required for systemic change.
Impact as a measurement for success
