An example of startup support aimed at solving climate change
Challenges to climate change with Nordic accelerators.
Climate change is the most pressing threat that the human species faces today and to stabilize the earth’s temperature rise at 1.5℃, we need to follow the Carbon Law of cutting carbon emission by half every decade and reach net-zero emissions by 2050. But we are moving too slow and rapidly running out to time. We urgently need to join these forces and take action to solve the climate crisis.
Startup Climate Action, initiated by Sting and Norrsken, is a challenge-driven initiative on a mission to create and accelerate startups that bring solutions to fight climate change.
Inspired by the SDG 13 Climate Action, 13 leading Swedish Climate Champions are presenting 13 Climate Challenges that need to be solved. They want to turn the ideas and skills into new Climate Startups that bring solutions to fight one of the biggest problems of our time.
(1) Green & Clean Transports
(2) AI for the Planet
(3) Sustainable Materials
(4) Energy Efficiency
(5) Circular Economy
(6) Reduced Waste
(7) Reduced Carbon Emissions
(8) Energy Storage
(9) Carbon Capture & Storage
(10) The Human Ocean
(11) Renewable & Clean Energy
(12) Green Buildings
(13) The Future of Food
Startup Climate Action is initiated by Sting and Norrsken, two leading startup ecosystems in Sweden. They share the belief that innovation and technology combined with the power of entrepreneurship can create rapidly scalable businesses that can help solve some of the world’s biggest problems.
This year, Sting will run a dedicated Climate Action Accelerator for up to six carefully selected startups, providing tailored support to up and coming climate startups. The “Best Idea” winner from the Test Drive program will qualify directly for one of the slots in the accelerator.
