ClimateCollective

After many years in the renewable energy space,
we realized that we need to do more. And quickly!

The Beginning

Having been entrepreneurs for a long time ourselves, we noticed that the world, and especially the Global South,
needs tens of thousand of climate entrepreneurs, to come up and push this world faster towards sustainability.

But we needed to come together, to work together if we had a chance to succeed.

And thus was born the idea of the Climate Collective!

Welcome to this day!

Today Climate Collective is a dynamic team of nearly 40 driven individuals, who daily build platforms that support Climate Tech entrepreneurs in the early perilous stages of the startup journey.

"

we still have more
milestones to go!

Our Vision

A sustainable world that balances our need for development
in sync with nature that we wish to leave our kids and
future generations.

Our Mission

To extend the Climate Collective ecosystem model and platforms to every country in the Global South by 2025, supporting at least 1500 early-stage climate tech startups every year by then.
