Climate Ventures celebrates first anniversary!

One year ago this month, CSI’s Climate Ventures opened its doors at CSI Spadina. Climate Ventures is an incubator for the entrepreneurs, innovators and advocates working on climate solutions and climate justice. It offers workspace, advisor office hours, workshops, community, and accelerator programs.

Climate Ventures now has 62 member startups and organizations, and 43 advisors who volunteer their time.

We have loads planned for our next year, including the launch of Earth Tech, an accelerator for freshwater and climate tech solutions. More on that in October!

We are so grateful to everyone who has contributed to our first year of growth, and to our programmatic partners, including the RBC Foundation, the Peter Gilgan Foundation, Bullfrog Power, and WWF-Canada. We could not do this work without our partners, advisors, the CSI community, and our incredible CSI staff team. Thank you!

Read on for a highlight on just a few of the thousands of CSI members who are innovating for a better world, and check out their advice to the next generation of innovators and changemakers.

We exist in a world with overlapping crises that we wake up and face everyday. And so the next generation of climate action must tell a different story, and reflect a different reality. A reality where climate investments meaningfully improve the lives of residents, where every community in the country feels connected to the work, where we acknowledge the stakes and get down to the hard work of building a world that breaks down the individualistic silos and shows how much better life could be.
