Our Start-ups

Our start-ups deliver the solutions of tomorrow

To solve the biggest challenge facing modern society, we need the power of the largest community. 

We combine the power of the start-up community with the demands of today’s world. Our programmes have supported more than 2,100 start-ups, making the EIT Climate-KIC start-up community one of the largest worldwide. Each of its members is here to help solve our generation’s greatest challenge – and every year we are joined by another 200-300 start-ups. 

Our start-ups are leaders in their fields. In the last three years, almost 30 Climate-KIC backed entrepreneurs have been honoured in the Forbes 30 Under 30 Europe list. 

EIT Climate-KIC also connects the start-up community with our other communities: students, cities, businesses, academia and research.

Over €1.1B capital was raised in external investment by our start-ups in 2022 and we work to connect investors with climate change start-ups across Europe.

If you have a solution to a climate challenge, join our community today.
