AND REMINDERS HERE
The second edition of The Clean Fight will be focused on high-growth, scalable solutions tackling the decarbonization of the mass-market of buildings.
Those that are tough to crack but critical to decarbonize. Where many stakeholders don’t have the same time, resources and funding as their Class A brethren. Buildings that are more likely to house frontline and underserved communities, whose greening not only creates climate impacts, but disproportionate health, comfort and savings impacts.
Our non-residential program will run from November 2021-April 2022
To help you be as successful as possible, here are some tools and information.
OUR KIND OF COMPANIES
Our goal is to find companies at the sweet spot of market appetite, and climate & human impact. As a result, we seek out:
GROWTH-STAGE STARTUPS: Solutions with proven efficacy and impact, along with meaningful adoption from a diverse customer base. We’re looking for ~$1M+ in annual revenue (2020 or last 12 months) or other clear signs of market adoption. You don’t need to have a presence in the US; we welcome companies from around the world.
CLEAN BUILDING INNOVATIONS: We’re looking for best-in-class solutions that will help
de-carbonize New York’s mass-market building stock, quickly.
We're particularly - but not exclusively - focused on: Multifamily (affordable and non-luxury market rate), Class B/C office and mixed use properties.
CLIMATE & HUMAN IMPACT: Our favorite solutions combine: greenhouse gas emission reduction + economic/health/lifestyle impacts for all + speed of implementation.
AREAS OF PARTICULAR INTEREST INCLUDE:
Electrification, zero-carbon energy, building optimization & efficiency, demand flexibility, energy storage, low carbon materials, next generation HVAC, modular construction, and financial innovation. For existing buildings or new construction.
If you have a solution outside of these areas, we welcome your application if it still meets the above criteria.
INTENTION TO SCALE IN NEW YORK: Our program is designed to facilitate business agreements with customers in New York. If you secure contracts as a result of the program, you must be willing to establish a presence in New York State.
