This week I’m excited to share with you many exciting startups! But first…
New opportunities for startups —
BNEF Pioneers 2022: The BNEF Pioneers program identifies game-changing technology innovations with this year’s focus on three challenges: round-the-clock zero-emissions power, scaling long-term carbon removal technologies, and decarbonizing aviation. Apply by Nov 11th.
Breakthrough Energy Fellows Program: The Breakthrough Energy Fellows program is designed to support commercialization of early-stage technologies, processes, or materials that have the potential to reduce CO2 emissions by 500 million tons per year by 2050. Nominations are due by Nov 12th.
Before we dig into this week’s startups, today’s newsletter was sponsored by The gener8tor Sustainability Accelerator!
The gener8tor Sustainability Accelerator will invest $100k in five cutting-edge sustainability and climate tech startups and provide them with the coaching and connections they need to build and grow their business. This program is open to any startup that is focused on solving, mitigating, or adapting to our current climate and environmental crises.
gener8tor is a nationally ranked accelerator and has invested in and supported over 750 startups through the 50+ accelerator programs they have around the country. These companies have gone on to raise over $700m+ in follow-on funding and over 53% have either been acquired or raised more than $1m.
Applications are open until December 19th. You can learn more and apply here, or you can reach out directly to the managing director, Ryan Jeffery, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Summaries are provided by startups
BeMup provides mobility by subscription. We are an alternative to having a private car, picking up our club members within 5 minutes after a trip request and driving them to their destination at the speed of a private car. 24/7. We operate a fleet of electrical vehicles to do that, with a retio of 8-10 subscribers per vehicle. Our subscription is cheaper than operating a car and hassle free.
Lemna provides phytoremediation & water quality data feedback to livestock farmers, to solve liquid manure nutrient management with our multi-layered duckweed growth system, Lemna Layers and subscription data feedback portal.
Woon Duurzaam provides a one-stop-shop cloud platform connecting homeowners with high quality providers of energy saving equipment to accomplish energy zero living.
220 Million European homeowners are demanded, by law, to switch to CO2 emissions free heating and cooling systems in their houses. However homeowners lack knowledge on these technologies. And manufacturers and installers are not able or willing to comfort them with tailor made designs, quotes, invoices, and sales efforts. The result? Homeowners do not act.
Woon Duurzaam helps these customers in their pursuit of a sustainable lifestyle. The company provides every homeowner with an affordable energy sustainable home without hassle or frustration. With attractive ROI’s and financial propositions and the possibility to manage your energy. And to suppliers, Woon Duurzaam offers entry to a huge market of individual homeowners, without the hassle to get them through the sales pipeline.

Support Innovate Climate
If you enjoy or get value from Innovate Climate, please consider supporting my efforts via Patreon. I spend more time researching, outreaching to, and talking to startups (and investors) than working my full time job. My mission is to help startups create climate impact by helping them connect with the right resources. This passion project has started to take over my life more and more (in a good way), and I’d like to continue doing this, perhaps even full-time.
Do you know a great climatetech startup? Forward this newsletter to them so they can fill out our founder survey and be featured in future newsletters.
