EIT Climate-KIC Greenhouse offers 2500€ funding and coaching for your green idea!

EIT Climate-KIC Greenhouse is open for new applications until 28 May (today!!!)

Got an idea? EIT Climate-KIC offers a special pre-incubation programme, the Greenhouse, to starting entrepreneurs who have a climate business idea and the motivation to make it happen in the future – but are not fully ready yet. Whether your idea is not completely developed yet, or you need some more time to perfect your already existing business plan, the Greenhouse programme is the place to be.

The six-month long Greenhouse programme helps future entrepreneurs to grow their climate business ideas and gives them dedicated business development support. 

Who can apply?
This Program accepts both students and professionals, and offer equal opportunities to all nationalities, gender and age groupsSince it is a pre-incubation stage, applicants should hold a job or study. 

The Greenhouse is only a part-time programme, and Greenhouse funds cannot be used as a source of income for team members. A team should consist of at least two members.

Greenhouse is the opportunity to:
  • Create your own business idea related to climate change adaptation and/or mitigation.
  • Work in multidisciplinary teams supported by business coaches to develop and pitch your own ideas as potential business ventures.
  • Be inspired by entrepreneurs and innovators who are already putting their ideas into practice.

Through the Greenhouse programme, participants will:
  • Be equipped with and utilise basic skills required to approach sustainable business creation in a transdisciplinary manner
  • Enhance their understanding of entrepreneurship and climate innovation in a semi-protected environment (within a safe test bed for early stage entrepreneurs)
  • Utilise the Climate-KIC network to better understand the systemic challenges of climate relevant business

Successful teams will receive professional coaching on topics such as business modelling and pitching as well as grants of up to 2.500 €, the possibility to part-time use office space and infrastructure. They also receive access to the most renowned European climate innovation network of leading corporation, universities, research institutions, start-ups and students. 

All ideas are welcome, however, EIT Climate-KIC operates around four key themes concerning climate change mitigation and adaptation: Urban Transitions, Sustainable Production Systems, Decision Metrics and Finance and Sustainable Land Use. The main part of our support goes into projects that search for viable solutions to one of these challenges and making an impact to climate change mitigation or adaptation.

They are currently recruiting Greenhouse teams in Bulgaria, Spain and the Netherlands, with additional locations to follow soon (e.g. Italy, UK and Ireland). At least one member of the project group should live close to the location, in order to be able to physically attend the monthly coaching sessions.

Apply now!
Application deadline is open until 28 May 2018 (TODAY!). Successful teams will commence in the Greenhouse programme in July, and finish in December 2018.
