£250,000 investment opportunity for academics to transform the industries that have the most impact on the environment. 

Zinc’s venture builder programme supports founders from multidisciplinary backgrounds to build evidence-based companies around social missions. Their next programme is focussed on transforming the industries that have the most impact on our environmental crisis. Founders will receive up to £250,000 investment in their business, and 12 months intensive support. Here’s all the info in one sheet.

We’re looking for exceptional individuals to who want to build new commercial ventures to tackle the environmental crisis. We are also looking for what we call Visiting Fellows to join our network: experts and advisors from business, academia, design, technology and the public sector who support Founders and their newly created ventures by offering expertise in the form of talks, workshops, office hours and access to research and partners. If you would like to learn more, I’m happy to jump on a call–just drop me an email at stephen@zinc.vc–or you can join one of our upcoming Meet & Greets, either online or in-person.

Guidance on the application process can be found here.
