Accelerator opens doors for UK start-ups with a focus on global warming

Innovation Birmingham's €400,000 Climate-KIC accelerator is seeking to discover products, services and innovations that are targeting climate change

Green businesses with a focus on climate change and global warming can now apply to take part in the Climate-KIC Low Carbon accelerator; the €400,000 start-up programme ran by Innovation Birmingham.

Intended to “transform low carbon business plans into commercial successes”, the accelerator will provide grants of up to €20,000, hot desk space at Birmingham’s science park iCentrum building, and has promised to provide international publicity to all companies involved.

The programme is open to all UK start-ups that are less than three years-old and have a product, service, or innovation to tackle climate change.

This latest accelerator follows Innovation Birmingham’s launch of its smart cities start-up accelerator earlier this year.

Katharine Fuller, Innovation Birmingham’s senior project manager for EU projects, said:

“The alumni of our programme, here at Innovation Birmingham, have always gone on to achieve great success. With the bar already set high, I am very much looking forward to seeing the progress of this year’s participants.”

The deadline for applications is June 10 2016, click here to apply.
