We are not alone
Cleantech for Morocco & Africa
We are the Morocco’s cleantech innovation pioneers. Since 2020, we have been investing in the early-stage technologies that will get the world to net zero and create long-term prosperity for Morocco as well as for The African continent. The innovative startups and scales-ups we grow are low and high-risk as well, they need significant support to launch or scale up. We are on a mission to create a cleaner, fairer economy, and we are in it for the long run.
Start-ups shaping a climate-positive new normal
ClimAccelerator is a global programme giving start-ups access to innovate, catalyse and scale the potential of their climate solutions.
In a global community of organisers, we run both theme-based and place-based acceleration programs. It goes beyond European borders, building a bridge between our world’s industry experts and systems to break new ground in carbon reduction.
With the European Green Deal and Paris Agreement as north stars, breakthrough businesses with proven climate impact technologies and partners need one powerful platform where they can connect and scale towards true industry transformation.
It’s time to unleash the innovation potential of start-ups to shape a climate-positive new normal.
Diverse programs for everyone with impact
As we progress, our focus in entrepreneurship programs lies in forging partnerships. We recognize the crucial need to tap into the power of a diverse, interconnected global community to bring about the transformative changes necessary for unlocking systemic shifts.
Our approach to nurturing entrepreneurship has evolved to encompass programs that involve multiple stakeholders and drive profound transformations. The Climathon program, designed to activate and inspire citizens while generating ideas, serves as the initial catalyst. Subsequently, our incubator, ClimateLaunchpad, supports innovators in transforming their ideas into businesses that have a positive impact on the climate. To date, we have provided assistance to over 3,000 such ventures. Finally, ClimAccelerator propels these startups forward by fostering radical collaboration and facilitating resource sharing.
However, entrepreneurs and their teams can only go so far on their own. They require support in ideation, business acumen, network access, financing, and mentorship opportunities. This is where EIT Climate-KIC comes into play. We take pride in offering comprehensive support throughout the entire startup development pipeline, enabling the release of business solutions on a scale and at a speed necessary for driving systemic change.
Collectively, these programs bridge the divide between climate-positive concepts and significant global impact. Individuals such as citizens, students, experts, corporations, governments, and entrepreneurs can connect with a worldwide network of groundbreaking solutions aimed at reducing emissions and adapting to climate challenges.
We invite you to join our programs and unlock the potential for innovative solutions that shape a climate-positive new normal.
