How to build a Net Zero startup with Carbon13: for founders from a corporate or entrepreneurial background

About this Event:

Welcome to Carbon13’s webinar, open to anyone looking to build a startup that can reduce emissions and help the world achieve Net Zero.

Whether you’ve already grown a startup or are new to entrepreneurship, this webinar will introduce you to Net Zero entrepreneurship and to Carbon13’s Venture Builder.

Carbon13’s eight-month Venture Builder programme supports a cohort of 50 founders to form cofounding teams and develop their ideas into a commercially successful venture capable of reducing emissions by millions of tonnes

What you’ll learn:

  • How the Venture Builder works, and what we look for in applicants

  • How to use your skills, career and experiences to be a founder; how to play to your strengths and understand what you bring to the table

  • How entrepreneurship will play a critical part in delivering the world-changing innovation needed to achieve Net Zero

  • Why Carbon13 is placed at the heart of the Cambridge ecosystem, the UK’s hotspot for climate entrepreneurship and deep tech ventures

We’ll also cover how Carbon13’s Venture Builder will:

  • Support you to find a technical cofounder from the cohort of 50 founders, including how to ask the difficult questions

  • Help you understand how to find the high-impact high-potential ideas, and avoid the incremental, slow or dead-end ideas

  • Help you to build your network in the Net Zero and sustainable entrepreneurship world

  • Start you on an intensive journey of learning, around the challenges of Net Zero and sustainability and the best practices in entrepreneurship

  • Invest in the qualifying ventures built by founders on the programme

Who’s eligible for Carbon13’s Venture Builder:

There is only one requirement to apply for Carbon13: the absolute commitment to reducing emissions through a scalable venture.

If you want to play your part in saving the climate and spend your time on making a meaningful impact, then you should apply to Carbon13.

When you join Carbon13 you join a cohort of 50 founders who are all as dedicated to reducing emissions as you are.

The challenges of Net Zero are so complex, that people from every industry and sector are needed to come together to find those world-changing ideas.
