CONNECTING CORPORATES TO INNOVATORS
If you’re an innovation hungry multi-national and want to secure the latest leading edge cleantech innovations from Cambridge, Oxford and London, we can help you make the right connections. Being a member of Cambridge Cleantech gives you access to hundreds of promising cleantech companies in the UK and Europe and the opportunity to commission tailored ‘meet-the-buyer’ events suited to your innovation needs.
HOW WE CAN HELP YOU MEET INNOVATORS
- If you are a corporate looking for innovation, you can approach us with a list of technological innovations for which you are seeking solutions.
- We work with you to create a needs statement and share this with our members and other clean-tech organisations in sister organisations across Europe.
- Once interested members send in their proposals, each cluster shortlists suitable SMEs from their network and we send you a final shortlist.
- We arrange one-to-one meetings with the SMEs that have been shortlisted.
WHAT IS SCALE-UP AND HOW CAN YOU BENEFIT FROM IT?
Cambridge Cleantech is a member of SCALE-UP, a collaboration between existing, successful regional cleantech clusters in Europe. It gives an opportunity for our members to tap into cleantech clusters all over Europe. What this means is that you, as a cleantech member, can take your idea to an investor or corporate sitting in Denmark. You can read more about the project here.
Since the SCALE UP project began in 2017, the five cleantech clusters in Belgium, Denmark, the Netherlands, Sweden and the United Kingdom have successfully connected more than 500 innovative SMEs to corporate buyers.
