Novel materials’ companies are starting their journey in Beamline Deeptech batch

The initiative of KIK / Ministry of Climate marks a significant milestone in Estonia's commitment to fostering innovation within the cleantech sector, emphasizing the importance of science-based solutions in addressing global environmental challenges. Teams entering the program are creating a wide variety of the cleantech solutions: from combating food insecurity by lab-food or bio-fertilizers to revolutionizing energy storage and management, the participating startups embody the program's mission to address critical environmental issues through cutting-edge technology. Almost one million euro will be tunneled to support the teams in green chemistry and sustainable resources focus.

“Mitigating climate change requires new technological solutions. New clean technologies also create the preconditions for Estonia’s economic growth. This cleantech accelerator will help to test solutions and bring them to the market in those areas where we see Estonia’s competitive advantage in the discussions on the Climate Law” said Kristen Michal, Minister of Climate of the Republic of Estonia.

A pivotal aspect of the program is the fostering of deep connections between startups, industry mentors, and the broader cleantech community. That's why the first step as a kickstarter of the program was so called an Onboarding Week in Tallinn, to include the teams into Estonian cleantech and startup communities. Teams got a chance to meet with local mentors and investors, media and field experts - Lemonade Stand, 2C Ventures, Sunly Future Ventures, EstBAN members, Äio Tech, Found.me if just to name some of the guests. These relationships not only enrich the entrepreneurial journey but also ensure the ventures are well-equipped to navigate the complexities of the market and environmental challenges. Engagements with leading figures from the Estonian e-Residency, SmartCap, joint organization of KredEx and Enterprise Estonia among others, underscore the collaborative spirit that defines the experience that startups get from the program of Beamline Accelerator.

It was mesmerizing to meet the frontrunners in their early stages of development and see the spark in their eyes while envisioning the future, which is what Sunly Future Ventures is looking for in impactful startups the most. I am looking forward to keeping track of the progress and outcomes of the startups to keep the region's growth in cleantech growing at a much-needed pace."
