Marble is a climate tech venture studio solving hard climate problems. Our mission: bring us at least one gigaton closer ...View Company Profile
Marble is a climate tech venture studio. Our north star is to erase billions of tons from annual greenhouse gas emissions and create a thriving future.
We partner with scientists, engineers and operators to create new deeptech companies that solve hard climate problems — slash industrial emissions, remove carbon from the atmosphere, and cool the planet — while reshaping multi-billion $ industries.
We're proud to be backed by leading climate investors across Europe and the US.
The chemicals and fuels sector account for a major share of greenhouse gas emissions, among other externalities. Aviation and chemicals alone account for 4% of global emissions (about 2 gigatons) with expected demand growth that far outpaces other hard to abate industries. These two sectors are also lagging behind in net zero goals.
Essential products like fertilisers, plastics, fabrics, rubber, paints, also rely on petrochemical feedstocks and energy intensive processes at every step.
Bioproduction offers promising routes to clean chemicals. However, the field has historically been slowed down by inefficient pathways, slow R&D cycles and key scaleup bottlenecks that available technologies cannot overcome. With a few exceptions, commercialisation has been limited to low-volume, high-value products.
We are interested in new pathways and tools that could overcome these barriers and unlock the true power of biology to clean the most polluting industrial sectors.
Nice to have: fundamentals of chemical and process engineering, separation technology, techno economic modelling, life cycle assessment
As a Founder-in-Residence, you will join stellar individuals who also believe in the need for deeptech solutions to solve hard climate problems.
Together, we would be scoping high potential approaches before converging on the most promising one and finding your future co-founders
We offer (among other things)
We are currently taking applications for the November 2023 cohort and we are interviewing on a rolling basis so we encourage you to apply as soon as possible!
We believe that a diverse group of minds is key to solving the climate crisis. We encourage women and people of colour to apply.
Studies have shown that under-represented candidates are less likely to apply unless they feel they meet every single qualification. If you are excited about the opportunity but your experience does not align perfectly - we encourage you to apply anyways.
We are committed to a diverse, inclusive and mission-driven Founder community.
