Building Ventures

Each year, we actively support the development of a few chosen cleantech solutions in different phases. While the Impact Venture Builder program focuses on creating new startup teams by matching ideas and talents, the Nordic Cleantech Accelerator helps cleantech companies that already have a product and first customers to take the great leap into the global market.

About the Impact Venture Builder

The Impact Venture Builder focuses on the development of promising cleantech solutions from ideation stage to market growth. The programs’ collaborative approach and its end-to-end innovation process make it a unique program! We are breaking the silos in which innovation activities are happening and facilitate the interplay between all types of public and private stakeholders, research and corporate innovators, industrial companies and entrepreneurs to develop ideas further, build strong startup teams around them and bring them to the markets faster.

First we collect ideas, then experts (all founders of the program, such as energy companies, cities, other industrial actors etc.) assess their value and pick the best ones, and finally we match the chosen ideas with talents to build diverse startup teams that develop them further with the support of the Impact Venture Builder network.

Nordic Cleantech Accelerator

In the Nordic Cleantech Accelerator, we are focusing on the acceleration of a few Nordic and Baltic cleantech startups each year. We are supporting the companies to get access to markets and investments to achieve sustained international growth. According to the startups’ needs, we introduce them to investors and industrial partners, we facilitate their entry into global markets and bring them to exciting cleantech events.

Growth plan

We are committed to work with a few chosen startups hands-on, to achieve their growth and funding goals. Together we develop a growth plan with specific success KPIs. In our first meeting we make sure to discover individual needs to adapt our support accordingly (e.g. organise specific training sessions).


Investor meetings & events

Based on the individual growth plan we will provide exclusive meetings with Cleantech Scandinavia’s industrial partners, investor group, energy utilities and cities. In addition, we will bring the startups to cleantech events where they can showcase their innovation and establish important business contacts.

Partnership opportunities

Through our extensive network of international investors, industry companies and cities we are able to open up doors like no one else. We help you to get funding, engage in development partnerships and find industrial customers!

Note: We are working on a new Accelerator Program, which includes a physical program in Lund, Sweden. Stay tuned for program development!
