What kind of startups are eligible

We are looking for startups that develop solutions for climate adaptation and resilience in the rural context of Tanzania. Climate adaptation and resilience are pivotal in today's rapidly changing environment. Adaptation involves implementing strategies, actions, and solutions that help societies effectively respond to the adverse impacts of climate change, such as extreme weather events, rising sea levels, and shifting ecosystems. Resilience, on the other hand, is about strengthening communities, ecosystems, and economies to withstand the impacts of climate change, ensuring they can recover swiftly and thrive amidst changing conditions.

In this call, we seek innovative startup teams with prototypes/MVPs, startups with a customer base that create transformative solutions and technologies in climate adaptation and resilience. We are looking for startups that embody visionary approaches to safeguard our environment and communities, developing products or services that fortify infrastructures, enhance ecosystem vitality, and foster sustainable practices to navigate the challenges of climate change successfully.



The Adaptation and Resilience ClimAccelerator is a multi-stage programme that supports start-ups developing climate adaptation solutions. It starts with application and selection, proceeds to a pre-acceleration phase for refining ideas, and then enters a core acceleration phase with resources and mentorship. The programme concludes with pitch events and offers post-acceleration support. The A&R ClimAccelerator guides start-ups through the entire journey of developing and scaling climate adaptation solutions.
