The Climate Tech Startups to Watch This Month: September Week 4

September Week 4, 2023: In this monthly series, we highlight 5 climate tech startups to watch by featuring the incredible companies and projects that they are leading to fight climate change. 

Each month, we add these startups to our running list, which we have categorized based on fuel emission sector data from the most detailed, recent data SBC could identify from the World Resource Institute in 2016.

This initiative from Startup Basecamp aims to support founders by giving them access to networking and exposure opportunities that help them to scale and finance their climate tech solutions.

Do not hesitate to join our collective movement by requesting your membership.

With care,
Guillaume and the SBC TEAM
