HONG KONG PROGRAM

CLEANTECH & SUSTAINABILITY
Overview

A virtual program focusing on global startups that are building innovative solutions to save our climate’s future. The program is designed to support promising projects by offering tailored mentorship and introructions to organizations practicing conservation and sustainability.

Every year, the world adds 51 billion tons of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere, exacerbating climate change and driving up global temperatures, which in turn, has a vicious circle effect. The
only way to avoid the worst impacts of climate change and sustainability collapse is to collectively take immediate and decisive action to stop spreading greenhouse gases by 2050.

There are a number of factors negatively contributing to this problem. From battery and industrial farming to HVAC solutions, to deforestation, from ocean contamination and poor diets to
transportation and building practices, we constantly make the problem worse – and soon, it will be too late.

Our belief is that these challenges can be solved by entrepreneurs. The CleanTech and Sustainability program is looking to back these entreprensurs making a positive impact on the world.

We invest a minimum of $80,000 USD via SAFE note or in an equity round for a negotiable percentage.
