Cambridge Cleantech and Oxfordshire Greentech are inviting interested parties to attend Cleantech Venture Day on March 25th 2021, where 24 leading climate tech companies will battle for the attention of investors.
When global leaders arrive in Glasgow for COP26, citizens around the world will demand strong commitments to address the climate challenge. These commitments will need industry-disruptive technologies in sectors from hydrogen energy and housing to zero emissions transport – and this is where the climate tech sector has the opportunity to shine.
The Cleantech Venture Day climate tech investor event has been running since 2006 and over the last 15 years, over £650 billion euros have been invested in the sector. This is the fourth year Cambridge Cleantech is running the event in the UK and the second online edition after a very successful venture week last November with over 250 attendees.
Those attending the event will be able to engage with the 24 companies pitching this year, whose solutions align with the UK Government’s Ten Point Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution:
Point 4: Accelerating the shift to zero-emission vehicles
Point 5: Green public transport, cycling, walking
Point 7: Greener building
Point 8: Carbon capture, usage, and storage
The shortlisted companies will be joined on the day by eight high growth climate tech companies from the UK Government’s Act4Green programme. Act4Green is a business accelerator programme for cleantech companies run by the UK Government Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office in partnership with Cambridge Cleantech in the first quarter of 2021.
Aled Jones, Director at the Global Sustainability Institute at Anglia Ruskin University, will deliver the keynote address on insights into the world of cleantech innovation and investment.
“The world is looking to COP26 to solve the climate crisis, but we will need climate tech innovations to get us there” said Martin Garratt, CEO of Cambridge Cleantech. “I invite investors interested in sustainability to join us on the day to hear from some of the most disruptive companies in the fields of clean energy, zero emissions mobility, carbon capture and more. As always, I am impressed by the range and innovative thinking behind these companies and it is heartening to see them grow as a result of connections made on the day.”
Investors will have the opportunity to request one-to-one meetings with companies of interest on our bespoke networking platform. Meetings will take place on the 25th and 26th of March.
