Accelerating the global impact of Australian climate tech innovation
We are looking for ambitious climate tech founders who are currently, or plan to, expand their ventures to international markets.
If you'd like to be notified as soon as applications open, submit an EOI here.
Our team, mentors and investors understand the unique challenges that come with scaling a climate tech business and we're here to help.
We're 100% focussed on climate solutions and know that climate technology is different from normal tech. It is often deep tech, may be hardware, and can be complicated and messy. It can require consumer behaviour change and new measurement protocols. It also needs to get to scale fast in order to avert the climate crisis. It needs a new approach.
This is why we have designed a program that favours prolonged support centred around high-value mentorship. This allows us to spend more time together working on issues that will make a tangible impact on your business growth, like business development.
The GGP is a nine month program with no set curriculum. The entire program focusses on tailored coaching and mentoring based on your venture's specific needs. Alongside a cohort of likeminded peers, you will work with your Entrepreneur in Residence and Lead Mentor to define what will make a difference to your company's growth trajectory. This may be capital, customers, talent or leadership. Additionally, we know that it takes funding to explore new markets, so every company that enters the program will receive investment.
Applications will open in March 2023. We encourage you to submit an expression of interest if you want to be among the first notified when applications open.
We are also continually growing our mentor community. If you would like to express interest in becoming a mentor with Climate Salad, please submit a form below.
Customers are core to the success of your business. They prove that your solution addresses a real need, and are key to achieving sustainable, scalable and profitable growth. The GGP has a strong focus on business development and customer success.
Launching successfully in big global markets is key to having an outsized climate impact. The GGP will equip you with the knowledge and connections needed to determine and realise your first few steps in your venture's global growth journey.
Your team is your biggest asset. The best talent can help you grow faster, better and stronger. Attracting and retaining a diverse, agile team is essential to scaling your business.
Building community is a powerful way to access valuable information, resources and opportunities, or just get moral support. A key focus of the GGP is to equip ventures with a strong and supportive network of peers and experts.
Capital raising can be a long and arduous process. With over 30 years of combined cap raising knowledge within the Climate Salad team, the GGP can support your capital raising efforts and make the process easier through sharing effective strategies.
We care about meaningful solutions to climate change as much as you do and we understand that building an impact business can be challenging. The GGP can support you in better understanding and communicating your impact.
