Across the Katapult system we partner with leading organisations to support our portfolio companies and accelerate their growth while actively empowering impact initiatives. Our partnership model is divided into the following categories (and they often overlap):
Industry partners - accessing corporate networks and bringing fresh solutions and players to established industries
Knowledge partners - sharing insights and strengthening the community intelligence on impact tech
Community partners - increasing our reach to startups and investors, contributing to all stakeholders in the game
Program partners - providing services to our portfolio companies during and after our programmes
Partners often join us for access to our network and the opportunities connected to it. Let us know firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The Climate Accelerator Program is powered by Lundin Foundation.
Lundin Foundation is supporting Lundin Energy in investing in the transition to a low carbon economy. As a key part of Lundin Energy’s decarbonization strategy and commitment to carbon neutrality by 2025, the Foundation’s mandate is to support high potential, early-stage businesses that advance zero and low carbon innovations at scale. The Foundation receives an annual financial contribution from Lundin Energy to make impact investments into such businesses and to provide funding and strategic guidance to accelerator programmes that encourage the growth of sustainable innovations.
Lundin Foundation is an experienced impact investor with over 10 years track record of investing in the renewable energy sector. The Foundation has supported programmes and start-up businesses all over the world with funds totalling NOK 600 million. Lundin Foundation is proud to support the next generation of climate tech start-ups through the Climate Accelerator Program.
The Katapult Climate Mentors
One of the utterly most valuable parts of joining our accelerator programs is the ability to tap into and get support from the amazing mentor network we have been able to build up over the last years.
Across the Katapult system, we are leveraging the mentor network of about 200 brilliant minds, and we are currently establishing a specialised climate mentor network that will be launched this spring.
Have a look here at the existing Katapult Accelerator mentors and the existing Katapult Ocean mentors.
Here’s a sneak peak on some of the strong climate profiles we have in our network already:
