Carbon13 is the venture builder for the climate emergency.
We are selecting and supporting 1000 entrepreneurs over 5 years who will build scalable ventures with the potential to reduce CO2e emissions by over 400 million tonnes.
Our eight-month programme supports founders, scientists, engineers and innovators who are committed to developing high growth investable ventures that can reduce CO2e emissions by millions of tonnes.
Founders join with or without an idea, by themselves or with a cofounding team. They then use the programme to find a cofounder with the same appetite for innovation as they have, form a team capable of building a high growth investable venture which can credibly and significantly reduce emissions. They undergo intensive work to understand the biggest challenges in Net Zero, and qualifying ventures receive pre-seed investment from Carbon13. We will not invest in startups that do not have the potential to reduce emissions by millions of tonnes.
Carbon13 is based in Cambridge UK, it has grown out of the Cambridge ecosystem and is supported by Arm, Cambridge Cleantech et al. Our programme is open to everyone, you do not have to be resident in the UK to apply.
