Building a strategic investment partnership
EIT Climate-KIC is conducting an open search for several partners to join our new effort to build the 1.5 fund – an EIT Climate-KIC backed impact investment fund.
Interested in joining us? The document linked below sets out our key objectives as well as the key considerations we intend to take when selecting partners to work with us going forward. We aim to select an existing venture capital firm and a range of collaboration partners, to work alongside us to develop an early stage cleantech investment fund to support start-ups graduating our ClimAccelerator programme and deliver systemic climate impact.
We see an opportunity to develop a unique fund that is tightly integrated into our EU-wide programs and provides investors a new way of thinking about climate impact. The fund will build upon our system change work with cities, corporations and governments across Europe and direct investment to start-ups that have the highest systemic impact potential.
