Connecting investors with climate change start-ups across Europe

We know that a just, climate-resilient, beautiful future is possible. But to get there we need to aim for it. We need to invest in building the future. 

EIT Climate-KIC welcomes investors looking to work together on building a climate-positive new normal. That includes angel investors looking to invest in our start-ups and institutional investors looking to invest in large-scale value chain transformations.

EIT Climate-KIC is currently developing two investment funds to support start-ups graduating our ClimAccelerator programme and deliver systemic climate impact.

The 1.5 Seed fund targets first ticket investments into start-ups with highly innovative emerging technology, enabling them to move out to prototyping and into commercialisation.​ The 1.5 Scale fund targets start-ups that have proven their technology and gained initial commercial traction, enable them to scale operations globally.​

These funds will be tightly integrated into our EU-wide programmes and provide investors with a new way of thinking about climate impact. They will build upon our work with cities, corporations and governments across Europe and direct investment to start-ups that have the highest systemic impact potential.
