In advance of COP 26, the UN Climate Summit, Greenbackers has launched its “26-for-COP-26” SuperPitch which aims to get 26 of the most promising Net Zero start-ups (earthtech oceantech cleantech) funded with Seed or Series A investment between program launch at the end of May and the actual conference in November.
We fired the starting gun during a webinar broadcast globally to over 2200 investors, corporates and other stakeholders on May 20th. The event featured keynote speeches from our partners including Bertrand Piccard of Solar Impulse Foundation, Sarah Petrie, Investment Director from Michelin Scotland Innovation Park, Alexander Holt from the Digital Directorate at Scottish Government and Bill Baldiga, CEO of international law firm Brown Rudnick.
We will be announcing the final 26 ventures who were selected shortly. If you are a technology venture raising funding and missed the submission deadline you can still apply for our regular Showcase program of support.
