Our founders work with our network of hundreds of domain experts, entrepreneurs in residence, and carbon experts in residence, to understand the carbon lifecycle of their solutions - and maximise their potential to decarbonise.
Each cohort of 70 founders is drawn from all over the world, from different industries, skillsets, demographics, countries, age groups, skillsets. Breakthrough innovations come from cross-sectional communities. Half our ventures are software-based, the other half are hardtech/science-based. The average age of our founders is 37, with founders from their twenties to their sixties. So far, 50% of our ventures are led by women.
