GovGrant latest to sponsor Greenbackers SuperPitch at COP26

Greenbackers Investment Capital has announced a partnership with R&D and Intellectual Property specialists, GovGrant offering promising climate and clean technology further support during Greenbackers 6-month investment program in the run up to COP 26, the UN Climate Summit in Glasgow, this November.

26 Entrepreneurs have been selected and are currently being featured on a new digital deal platform “The Greenbackers Showcase”. This online investment platform puts the 26 chosen ventures into a “shop window” for the world’s leading investors to meet, review and determine their suitability for funding. The Showcase will culminate in a “SuperPitch” event at COP26 in Glasgow during November and livestreamed to a global investor audience.

Robert Hokin, Managing Partner at Greenbackers commented, “Our Showcase program is all about action – getting finance and finance support to ventures that can really move the needle – by introducing them online to our global community of pre-screened, verified investors, all which have a mandate to invest in this sector. We regularly encounter UK companies leaving money on the table by not claiming reliefs available for Research & Development and Patent Box filings. We believe that billions remain unclaimed and so we are delighted to be working with GovGrant, value their expertise in this area and welcome them to our growing community of sponsors.

Additionally, the Greenbackers team will proactively create investor dialogues on the platform and co-ordinate discussions between participating ventures and investors who visit.

Dominic Bartholdi, Head of Business at GovGrant, commented, “COP26 is the largest and most important global climate summit in many years – we are excited to be part of these sustainability initiatives that promote and celebrate climate and cleantech innovators. We are delighted that COP26 is in the UK and that GreenBackers have asked us to work with them on their Net Zero SuperPitch.”

Interested parties are invited to attend Greenbackers and GovGrant’s free online briefing on R&D tax credits & Patent Box on 31 August at 3pm: Register HERE.
