The Opportunity That Corporations Can’t Afford to Miss

The Funding Conundrum for the Cleantech Startup Ecosystem

Corporations as a Lever to Accelerate the Development of the Cleantech Space

  • Greater velocity in the commercialization of innovations.
  • In-depth business intelligence on innovations in key sectors.
  • Pollinate the entrepreneurial and innovation culture.
  • Create value, such as additional revenues and investments in emerging innovations.
  • Accelerate implementation of technologies to reduce greenhouse gases.
  • Create a strategic investor practice (corporate venture capital).
  • Obtaining C-Level buy-in from the get-go on the benefits of an open innovation project.
  • Identifying key strategic challenges — and getting executive buy-in — to submit to the startup ecosystem.
  • Generating a strong startup funnel and selecting the applicants who have the best product-challenge fit.
  • Managing expectations on deliverables for both executives and startups.

The fight on climate change can only be successful through key technological innovation and significant collaboration efforts across the business world.
