Biodiversity Accelerator+ Programme 2022 (Fully-funded to Singapore)

Deadline: 24th of June, 2022

The Biodiversity Accelerator+ is a three-month, high touch programme aimed at supporting up to 8 companies protecting the biological diversity of our planet. It is anchored on the belief that solving the biodiversity crisis will require both the adoption of nature-based solutions, as well as technological innovation.

The accelerator will support companies across two themes:

  • Nature Technology: Companies catalyzing biodiversity protection through hardware and software solutions addressing industry pain points, such as the cost or efficacy of conservation efforts. These could include the provision of cost-effective alternatives to traditional biodiversity monitoring methodologies, ecoengineering innovations, or multicrop harvesting solutions.
  • Nature Based Solutions: Companies operating on the ground to protect vulnerable landscapes or restore degraded ones via nature based solutions. Examples of such systems include regenerative agriculture (“regen ag”) or sustainable ocean aquaculture. These companies are not just protecting the environment. They are also helping local communities meet our economy’s demand for resources, while also earning better livelihoods, improving social wellbeing, and preserving the region’s cultural heritage.

  • All-expenses paid trip for 2-days in-person programme launch in Singapore
  • Opportunity to network with mentors, investors and programme partners.
  • Over $100K of in-kind services and coaching, provided for no fee or equity.
  • Focus on impact, community-building and wellbeing – both at the personal and organizational levels.
