Accelerator Deadline Tech Nation Net Zero
Tech Nation Net Zero – The Net Zero program is tailor-made for tech companies that are creating a greener, cleaner, and more sustainable future by helping the UK end its contribution to global warming by 2050. We’re aiming to support a wide variety of companies operating in different industries, and the six-month-long program is designed to help founders and the wider leadership team overcome specific challenges of scaling within this sector. United Kingdom; Deadline – July 20, 2020
The Net Zero program comes at a crucial time for the UK tech sector, as it looks to contribute to the UK’s recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic. Covid-19 has highlighted the role played by technology to aid a green recovery in both the short and long term. It’s a critical moment to build back better.
We are looking for digital and hardware companies that operate across key sectors, including electricity & energy, transport & mobility, agriculture, food systems, manufacturing, and building technology. Companies may directly contribute to net zero, with emission-reducing and carbon capture technologies, or may contribute indirectly by changing consumer behavior, or increasing efficiencies.
To qualify for the program, companies must:
- Be at funding stage/backing from pre-Seed – Series A
- OR If revenue-focused, generating annual revenues below £1.5m
- Have at least one active client or pilot
- Be able to demonstrate market traction.
- Have the ambition to scale
- Be headquartered in the UK.
The program will run for six months and will cover key scaling challenges specific to the sector. As with all of our growth programs, Tech Nation takes no equity stake in participating companies.
Tech Nation fuels the growth of game-changing founders, leaders, and scaling companies so they can positively transform societies and economies. We provide them with the coaching, content, and community they need for their journey in designing the future.
Tech Nation catalyzes the 21st-century infrastructure that accelerates the entire ecosystem, bringing together a network of purposeful founders and philanthropists, progressive enterprises and policymakers, influential funds, and institutions to collaborate in building the technological innovation that will improve the future for the UK and beyond.
