About the Event :

Welcome to Carbon13’s webinar, open to scientists, engineers and entrepreneurs with specialisms in food, protein, biotech, bio-engineering and similar, who are ready to focus on the biggest challenges and contribute to the global effort to reach Net Zero and build a venture that can credibly, measurably and significantly reduce CO2e emissions.

This webinar will also cover how you can use Carbon13 to do this, including finding the right cofounder, maximising the total addressable carbon reduction, and building an investable startup to deliver the maximum impact.

Who is this webinar for

Whether you’re already working on a decarbonisation idea or MVP, or are new to climate entrepreneurship, this webinar will help you understand what you can do to make an impact on the climate.

Carbon13 is based in Cambridge UK, but the mostly-remote programme is open to everyone around the world.

About Carbon13

Biotechnology and science are crucial to how our world can decarbonise the way it travels, eats, makes and powers the world - and developers use Carbon13 to focus only on the biggest problems, to make the biggest impact on emissions.

If you want to fight climate change, then Carbon13 is currently the strongest launchpad for you to build a decarbonisation venture from scratch—we've made pre-seed investments in 20 teams in the last 8 months.

We only work with early stage founders who can team up with serial entrepreneurs, carbon experts and industry folks (who make up the rest of our cohorts) to build ventures that can reduce emissions by 10 million tonnes a year.

Working on an MVP?

Unlike accelerators, you do NOT need an idea or MVP to join Carbon13, though you can apply with one if you do. For those of you without a fixed idea, you will either be supported to find an idea to develop which can significantly reduce emissions, or join a cofounder/team with strong insights into an emitting industry and lead the implementation of their validated customer pain points.

How does Carbon13 work?

On Carbon13 you are building a startup as part of a cohort of 70 founders. You are not sat in a room being told what you already know. Our programme is designed to 10x the work you're doing, because the planet doesn't have time to waste on theory or incremental ideas.

-Phase 1: Teaming in 6 weeks

You will find a cofounder in the first 6 weeks. As a technical founder you most likely will team up with a founder with a proven track record in founding startups or leadership in emitting sectors. 90% of the 70 founders on the cohort form teams within 6 weeks.

-Phase 2: Ideation & Validation in 8 weeks

Your team will intensely work on:

Team strengthening | Carbon intelligence | Rapid iterations of concepts | Business model forming | Prototype testing | Intellectual property | Customer development | Stakeholder development | Behaviour change | Governance | Venture incorporation

-Phase 3: Acceleration in 3 months

After Phase 2, we invest pre-seed into 10-12 ventures. They then use Phase 3 to focus on market, product, business model and strategy to prepare the venture for further seed-stage investment. We also help you look at scaling strategies, managing growth pains and developing a funding strategy.

The next cohort will begin in Cambridge, UK on 13th September 2022. 

Carbon13 in numbers:

- 50 startups launched since March 2021

- £2.5 million investment across 20 ventures

- 50% of the ventures are software, 50% science or hardware based

- 70 potential cofounders on every cohort

- 35 technical, 35 commercial cofounders

- 90+% of each cohort forms a cofounding team within 6 weeks

- 100s of domain experts, carbon experts, entrepreneurs in residence

- 13th September, the start date for the next cohort

- 10 million tonnes of emissions every year. We only launch startups that have the potential to reduce emissions by 10 million tonnes.

We caused climate change. Let's fix it.
