“In a typical year, the world emits over 51 billion tons of greenhouse gases.” - Bill Gates in “How to avoid a climate disaster”
51 billion tonnes of yearly greenhouse gas emissions stand between humanity and a climate disaster. According to Bill Gates in his book, How to Avoid a Climate Disaster, we have just 30 years to reduce that number to zero.
Together with Bill, 97% of all climate scientists, and the 191 countries that signed the Paris agreement, we are on a mission to help avoid climate disaster. To do so, we believe technological transformation and innovation will be crucial, and that entrepreneurs will drive this change. That is why we allocate capital, invest in and accelerate startups solving challenges related to climate change.
We have now opened applications for The Climate Accelerator Program, powered by Lundin Foundation. The Climate Accelerator is built on the successfully proven model of Katapult, and is the first program focusing solely on startups that are fighting climate change. Click here to read more and apply.
Katapult invests in and accelerates early-stage companies primarily through a 3-month accelerator program. To deliver the award winning program, we connect selected startups with mentors and experts across the globe together with leading industry partners. Through tailored content we help the companies scale fast, and both the investment- and accelerator models have been proven and strengthened through 10 Katapult programs over the last 4 years. The Climate Accelerator Program is powered by Lundin Foundation.
We look for early-stage startups with product-market fit, or a clear path to finding it, have some form of validation and have intentions to scale out of their own country of origin.
All companies contributing to a zero and low carbon future will be eligible to apply, including, but not limited to our main domains: Renewable Energy, Smart Cities and Industry, Mobility, Carbon Capture and New Frontiers.
We are on a mission to reverse climate change by investing in and supporting the best technology companies out there. The work to be done is immense, and we can definitely not do this alone.
