Map: Non-Dilutive Funding For Climate Tech Startups

It is estimated that to reach net-zero by 2050, “capital spending on physical assets for energy and land-use would amount to about $9.2 trillion per year on average, an annual increase of as much as $3.5 trillion from today.”

Although VC and private equity investments in climate tech have grown, with H1 2021 alone delivering  investments of more than $60bn, this investment is not enough to shift to low-emission, climate-resilient development pathways.

One alternative avenue for fundraising climate tech capital is soft-funding, a form of non-dilutive funding with no direct requirement for return of investment for the investor.

In order to ensure founders have access to a wide range of funding opportunities, we’ve created a map and database of non-dilutive funding options for climate tech. 👇
