A collective for curated climate founders and ideas

Curated ideas ➞ founders

We have 10 years to make climate innovation happen, but new entrants to the climate space often find it difficult to identify the right ideas to work on.

Climate Foundry was developed to source non-obvious ideas from climate experts and channel them to a high-caliber founding community for rapid prototyping.
