About Icademy For Climate

We need millions of innovations to combat the climate crisis. But most startup accelerators still use outdated models and a "survival of the fittest" mentality to cater exclusively to privileged, go-for-broke entrepreneurs.

We believe innovative startups that focus on making an impact while adhering to solid business practices make more profitable long-term businesses, enabling outsized impacts on our communities and the planet. We also believe the tools, processes, and community expertise the most successful entrepreneurs rely on should be available to everyone. So we created Icademy to help you bring your dream to reality according to your vision and values, whether a tech unicorn, removing billions of CO2 from the atmosphere, or a small B-Corp that brings you daily joy.
