Meet Europe’s “Green Deal” startup heroes

Just as the global climate crisis was beginning to capture the world’s attention, the Covid-19 crisis arrived with other ideas.

But as the world starts to return to a new kind of normal, European politicians say they’re committed to an economic recovery with our planet’s health in mind.

Back in March, the European Union announced its first dedicated funding instrument for “Green Deal” startups, via the European Innovation Council (EIC).

With €300m available to invest, it’s the largest ever funding round from the EIC, and now 64 companies have been selected for funding.
