Applications now open for Tech Nation’s Climate and Libra programmes.

Climate: Catalysing The Growth Of Climate Tech

The growth programme for climate tech startups committed to reducing global emissions, eliminating the world’s waste and restoring nature.

Over 45% of the emission reductions needed to reach net zero by 2050 will arise through the adoption of climate technologies that are still under development. We are here to safeguard its growth. Climate is the ultimate launchpad for climate tech startups! Our programme is dedicated to catalyzing climate innovation by providing founders with the tools and support they need to transform their ideas into reality.

Libra: Diversity Drives Innovation

Libra is the growth programme for underrepresented tech founders seeking support for their scale journey. The UK’s Black and Multi-Ethnic communities comprise 14% of the UK population, yet all-ethnic teams received an average of 1.7% of the venture capital investments made at seed, early and late stage between 2009 and 2019. For black women – it was 0.02%.

Libra is dedicated to empowering and connecting underrepresented tech founders, equipping them with the knowledge, connections, and tools necessary to scale their tech startups.

Submit your applications for both programmes by Monday 27 November 2023.
