Global Climatetech Incubator Programme – USA Edition Information Session

Are you a UK-based climatetech startup looking to enter the US market?



The Global Incubator Programme (GIP) is an international market entry accelerator program for a competitively selected cohort of climate startups based in the UK. Through support from the Urban Future Lab (UFL) at NYU Tandon School of Engineering, the program seeks to find breakthrough early-stage technology companies and leverage UFL’s market entry and soft-landing capabilities in New York City to attract local funding, partnerships, and customers for a select number of companies (ranging from six to eight companies per cohort). Each participating company will receive hands-on tailored advisement and support during their six-month participation in the program. At the conclusion of each cohort program, companies will have the opportunity to apply for membership at UFL’s ACRE Incubator program for continued support in the New York market. GIP is a multi-year partnership between Innovate UK and Urban Future Lab.

This information session will cover:

The application process, including eligibility criteria and what makes a strong application

A brief overview of the Cohort 2 curriculum, what the sponsors will provide, and what the expectations are of participants

Q&A sessions with the program managers as well as a Cohort 1 participant
