Meet the new teams!

Our call for innovative startups has reached many people. We have received many registrations from sustainable entrepreneurs. After drawing up a shortlist we invited the teams for a 2-day boot camp. The bootcamp took place on 11 and 12 February.

The bootcamp ended with a pitch round, in which all teams had to present themselves for a review board. After an intensive jury discussion, the final selection was announced. We welcome 9 new start-up teams into stage 1 of the Accelerator program. We encourage these teams to accelerate their business in the coming months. Climate-KIC supports the teams with funding and coaching. The grant in stage 1 is €10,000.

We are happy to welcome the following teams in stage 1:

  • Bright Energy: developed plug-and-play mobile battery containers to enable access to green energy, everywhere.
  • Ecocoin: developed a sustainable currency for planet Earth. ECO coins are earned through sustainable actions.
