Your chance to shine

We appreciate that you are working on Carbon Removal and are interested in joing the Carbon Removal ClimAccelerator program. In order to select the most promising teams for our program, we kindly ask you to fill out our online application. We look forward to getting to know you and your CDR solution!

Your application will of course be treated confidentially and deleted after the selection process has been completed. Still have questions? Check the FAQ or contact us directly.

Eligibility

Please note the following pre-requisites to be eligible for acceptance into the Carbon Removal ClimAccelerator program:

  • All teams need to be located in Europe.
  • All teams need to be formally registered businesses by the end of stage 1.
  • All teams need to work on CDR, be it by developing solutions that will eventually be able to realize CDR credits or solutions that solve market problems in the CDR space, e.g. a CDR marketplace or a MRV system. Part of your business may include emission avoidance and reduction; however, CDR needs to be front and center of your solution. Please consult our CDR page to ensure that your solution is in scope of the accelerator program.

Most frequently asked questions

Do I need to have a co-founder?

Ideally yes. However, if you are currently a sole founder you are still eligible to apply. We will expect you to be open to finding a co-founder within stage 1 of the accelerator.

I am working on an emission avoidance/reduction solution, am I also eligible?

No, this accelerator purely focuses on carbon removal through either nature-based, hybrid or technological solutions. If you work on mitigation activities you will not be accepted into the programme.

Does my company already need to be incorporated?

No. However, after stage 1 we expect you to be fully incorporated.

Will the activities take place in person or will it be virtual?

Currently all activities are scheduled to be virtual. However, if and when COVID settles we may consider a hybrid version of the accelerator.

Will each company reach stage 2 of the accelerator?

No, there will be a selection after each stage of the accelerator. Each team will have to pitch in front of a jury and only a selected few will continue to stage 2.
