Building A More Sustainable And
Equitable Future Together
the crux of sustainability
Climate change is having a disproportionate impact on the global south, where countries are more vulnerable to the effects of rising temperatures, sea level rise, and extreme weather events. In addition, many of these countries lack the resources and infrastructure to effectively address these challenges.
Climate tech startups play an important role in mitigating climate change as they focus on developing innovative and sustainable technologies.
The Climate Accelerator (tCA) is an integrated set of accelerator programs dedicated to helping early-stage climate tech startups enter the market, grow and succeed.
tCA provides startup founders at every stage of development with the resources and support to help them navigate through the complex and rapidly evolving climate tech ecosystem.
From proof of concept to product development, to market launch and scaling, we work closely with our portfolio startups to help them achieve their goals. Whether it’s through networking opportunities, mentorship, access to funding, or other key services, we are committed to providing the support and resources needed to succeed. Our team is made up of seasoned industry experts, startup trainers and dedicated professionals who understand the unique challenges and opportunities of working in the climate tech space.

Climate tech startup community across platforms
The Climate Accelerator (tCA) is a platform to provide holistic support in the crucial early stages of the climate tech startup journey.
Due to socio cultural biases, women founders sometimes remain weak in some basic business concepts and entrepreneurial skills.
Climate Ready is to support climate tech women founders who
would benefit from bridging knowledge gaps, increase in confidence
in pitching their own business idea, strengthening skills like networking for business which play a crucial role in the success of the venture. This program would help put the founders in a better position to leverage further programs in tCA and scale quickly.
The Climate Accelerator is the go-to destination for early-stage climate tech startups in the Global South.
Climate Launch plays a crucial role in catalyzing the development of MVP stage climate tech startups by providing access to networking opportunities, high-quality mentors, funding, and much more to help them succeed in the extremely difficult phase of the startup journey to commercialization.
Supporting such programs is not only an acceleration of global efforts to combat climate change but also an investment in
the success of individual founders.
