Climate Ventures Pitch Night 2019

Want to meet the winners of Pitch Night? Come to CV Mornings on April 3!

Agents of Change: Climate Solutions is an early-stage accelerator run by Climate Ventures, our incubator for social enterprises who are reducing greenhouse gas emissions and tackling the climate crisis.

The final major event for this cohort was participating in our Pitch Night. 250 people came out to show their support for the 13 ventures pitching! Each venture delivered an elevator pitch to the audience, who then voted on which five would get the chance to give their full pitches to a panel of esteemed judges. These judges determined the strongest pitches, and gave out awards totalling $20K.

The first place prize of $10K went to to Biopolynet. Check out their pitch deck!

The second prize of $6K went to the Spent Goods Company. Check out this Q&A with the founder!

The third prize of $4K went to Feedback! Check out this recent article about their work!

All the pitches were amazing and it was a super tight competition. Take some time to learn about the important work of all the Agents of Change.

If you weren’t at the event, this is what you missed!

A huge thank you to our advisors and coaches that helped make this program possible, and to our audience for making Pitch Night such a success. Most of all, we are so proud of the Agents of Change and the progress they have made. Thank you to the entrepreneurs working on creating our low-carbon economy and future! Want to be part of it?
