Our team and mentors understand the unique challenges that come with scaling a climate tech business internationally, and we're here to help.
We have designed trade missions that favour pre-market support centred around high-value mentorship, and a well-developed in-country program of events and opportunities. This allows us to help you gain maximum value from an international mission.
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. 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.
*Companies may tackle any sector of climate tech, including decarbonisation, natural capital, carbon removal, adaptation or mitigation.
Climate Salad Trade Mission are free for climate tech companies to participate in, however, companies must be able to cover all travel and accomodation costs.
