Entrepreneurship for systemic change

Entrepreneurship has a critical role to play in our broad-based approach to tackling climate change through systems transitions.

We run pre-incubation and start-up accelerator programmes in London, Edinburgh, Birmingham and Dublin, with delivery partners at leading universities. We deliver Climathon hackathon events in many more cities across the UK and Ireland.

We also support innovation within established organisations via our ‘end-to-end’ innovation programmes for formal partners.

Increasingly, these programmes are linked to the themes and needs of the bigger systems transitions underway in these city-regions.
