Ship2B Ventures

Limiting global warming to 1.5°C requires rapid and far-reaching decarbonisation across how we live, how we eat and how we make things. These three sectors currently account for 70 percent of global GHG emissions and yet attract only 25 percent of venture capital investment – the majority of which is funneled into later-stage innovations. Investing for 1.5°C aims to address these sector and stage imbalances by bringing additional investment into early-stage start-ups in the European climate tech landscape.

Investing for 1.5°C expands upon Ship2B Ventures climate impact investing experience as well as EIT Climate-KIC’s existing systems innovation activity and leverages their joint network of experts, innovators and scientific researchers. Demand-side insights from the Deep Demonstration partnerships with governments and corporations across Europe will also feed into the initiative to better match innovation supply and demand. Europe is desperately searching for better, cheaper and faster climate solutions and by backing bold entrepreneurs with new solutions we hope to add further momentum to the European Green Deal.
