The Net Zero X programme is designed to support the growth of climate tech companies with high-emissions reduction and exponential potential. The aim of the programme is to reduce the carbon funding gap, counter the climate tech ‘valley of death’ and connect climate tech founders to investors, corporates, partners, policy-makers and other stakeholders. This will help shape the ecosystem founders need to succeed.
Currently, only 25% of total funding raised in climate tech is being channelled into the technologies that hold 81% of the total emissions reduction potential required to achieve net zero. We are therefore very excited to be launching our new Net Zero X programme in partnership with PwC. Companies will benefit from Tech Nation and PwC’s expertise, investor & corporate network, and mentorship.
Net Zero X is free to join, and we don’t take an equity stake in your business.
Net Zero X is now accepting applications. If you’re a later-stage climate tech scaleup, operating across key sectors – this is the programme for you. The deadline to apply is at 4pm, on the 28th June 2022.
We are looking for the UK’s most promising later-stage climate tech scaleups operating across key sectors, including agriculture & food systems, manufacturing, construction, built environment, carbon removals, energy & electricity, and transport & mobility.
Criteria for applicants:
Be a climate tech scaleup, directly or indirectly contributing to greenhouse gas emission reduction
Have grant funding or investment between Series A and pre-IPO
Be headquartered in the UK
