The Nordic Accelerator

Being a part of something bigger.

At EIT Climate-KIC we run the world’s largest cleantech start-up accelerators. Since the beginning, we have supported more than 2,000 start-ups, of which many have grown to become leaders in their field. 

We identify, support and invest in entrepreneurs through every stage of innovation, helping them move from initial concepts, through testing and demonstration to achieve commercial scale. The accelerator program is an offer for ambitious startups with high-growth business potential and high climate impact. We also support the formation of early start-ups through our Climate Launchpad and Greenhouse pre-incubation programme. 

In the last three years, almost twenty Climate-KIC backed entrepreneurs have been honoured in the Forbes 30 Under 30 Europe list. We also match investors with our portfolio of scalable start-ups across Europe on our Investor Marketplace. Read on to learn more!
