“Without Climate-KIC, my business would not be where it is today: taking us from a fledgling business to a registered established company. Our turnover has quadrupled and we learnt the skills and tools to make systems efficient and organised. Thanks so much to Climate-KIC!” https://www.globalgreenevents.org — 2018, Stage 2 and 2019, Stage 3
“I think the RIS accelerator's biggest strength is its acting like a guidance tool and being able to remove as much pointless tasks from the process as possible while replacing those with insightful ones that can move everyone forward.” https://themightykitchen.com — 2019 Stage 2 & 2020 Stage 3 Graduate, Cyprus
“The brand has grown and now we have a fully functioning system. Last year we won the €200,000 TDP Fusion from MCST [Malta Council for Science and Technology]. Climate-KIC has been a great experience to start off the process from ideation to inception of the project — especially at a stage when there is as yet no proof of concept.” https://shapelamp.com — 2017, Stage 2 and 2018, Stage 3
“With help of EIT Climate- KIC and Chrysalis LEAP, we've achieved incredible results for our start-up. The Bootcamp helped us to open a new horizon for the future progress of our company in the matter of investments and planning our business expansion. We managed to successfully complete our milestones and integrate the necessary upgrades for our online business as well as increase our product line of new eco products to offer our current and potential customers. ” - — 2019 Stage 2 & 2020 Stage 3 Graduate, Cyprus
“With training received from the Accelerator programme, we’ve managed to arrange face to face interviews with 3 different customers segments, asking them very specific questions and successfully complete a sell with some of them. The best outcome of the programme was that we got the opportunity to come closer to our customers, learn more about the market we have and most importantly come in contact with customers in Greece that were willing to be our dealers and had already placed an order while we were still in the Accelerator Programme. We have to say that it is only because of the funding from the programme we’ve managed to produce and export in Greece and France. It was also a great opportunity to make the PEP in the USA so that we can have an official result about the performance of our solar ovens. During the webinars we had also the opportunity to discuss very important issues with experts about our business expansion and very good suggestions about our marketing strategy. We would like to thank all the team for their help. ” - — 2020 Stage 2 Graduate, Cyprus
“Thanks to Climate-KIC, we could set up Greenroads Limited, started experimenting with product development and bringing on board new shareholders. The company has now expanded to research and development in the field of transport, with its primary focus being encouraging a shift towards green and active mobility modes. Since joining Climate-KIC we have managed to secure one Horizon2020 grant and a first client.” https://www.greenroadsmalta.com/ — 2018, Stage 2 and 2019, Stage 3
