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!
