Climate-KICs Accelerator: next exclusive side call to start


Since October 2017 Munich Re and ERGO are fostering start-ups with ideas for dealing with climate change as part of the largest public-private climate initiative in the European Union – EIT Climate-KIC. The next exclusive side call starts now. Particularly new entrepreneurs in the field of cleantech are invited to submit their application for this exclusive side call until August 23.

So far there have been five selection phases, called batches, with a total of some 700 applications. 16 start-ups have been sponsored by Munich Re and ERGO, and not just with funding. In addition to financial support of up to €95,000 per start-up, there have also been workshops, individual coaching sessions, and guidance by experts from Climate-KIC, Munich Re and ERGO. In turn, Munich Re and ERGO will gain access to the innovatively creative ideas of the founders.
