Startup Climate Action

We want to generate new startups that are fighting climate change, and now it’s time to turn your vision into reality and unleash your potential.

The Climate Action Accelerate Program will start in 2021.

Join us and save the planet!

We need to stabilize the earth’s temperature rise at 1.5°C. To do so we have to follow the Carbon Law of cutting carbon emission by half every decade and reach net-zero emissions by 2050. But we are moving too slow and rapidly running out to time. We urgently need to join these forces and take action to solve the climate crisis.

Sweden is a country of innovation, strong entrepreneurs, tech unicorns, and great startup ecosystems. We are also a country of world-leading climate scientists, world-famous climate activists, and strong climate leaders and a unique position to be the frontrunner in creating the climate action unicorns of tomorrow. That is why we are launching Startup Climate Action!

Startup Climate Action, initiated by Sting and Norrsken, is a challenge-driven initiative on a mission to create and accelerate startups that bring solutions to fight climate change.
