CarbonCloud, the Swedish food tech start-up that helps the global food service industry to lower its carbon footprint while improving profit margins, was today selected one of Europe’s 30 most promising cleantech start-ups by EIT Climate-KIC.
In connection with the relaunch of the Investor Marketplace on 23 September 2018, the 30 most investor-ready companies from the EIT Climate-KIC’s start-up accelerator were identified and invited to take part in a preparatory program towards the annual Venture Competition taking place at Slush in Helsinki in December 2018. EIT Climate-KIC is running the world’s largest cleantech start-up accelerator, and these 30 have been identified to be the ones most ready for investors to help scale up operations and open new doors.
It’s a great honour and inspiration to be selected one of the 30 most promising cleantech start-ups in Europe says David Bryngelsson CEO and co-founder of CarbonCloud. The support from Climate-KIC accelerator has been extremely valuable and we are looking forward to connect with the international investor community at Slush.
CarbonCloud started as an idea based on a research project at Chalmers University of Technology and their carbon labeling service CarbonAte helps restaurants calculate the climate impact of each ingredient used in cooking and also gives the restaurant guest a clear climate calculation for each dish presented on the menu. CarbonCloud was earlier this spring selected as technical partner for WWF and their One Planet Plate campaign and was also recently awarded the sustainability award by The Swedish Exhibition & Congress Center.
