Why Climate Folks Love Climate Techies...
Matt and his connections within Climate Tech(ies) have been super helpful over the past few months. He helped us tremendously in closing our first financing round!
Rene Haas, CEO of Neocarbon
Of all the people I have worked with so far, Matt’s been the most active and helpful in terms of introductions. He has made tons of great intros to relevant potential investors and collaborators, and I am extremely happy.
Yehuda Borenstein, CEO of Climate Crop
4WARD.VC has been instrumental from day one in helping us connect to great investors, prospective clients and strategic partners. Can't recommend them/Matt enough - their network & hustle is incredibly valuable.
Dror Sofer, CEO of EExion
As someone new to the industry it has been nice to have someplace to plug into that immediately gave me exposure to many like-minded people with expertise across the industry doing work on technologies, companies, research. Matt has made connections and offered suggestion and resources, and the WhatsApp and Slack channels have been good for sharing information, job postings, product and other initiatives. It’s like a mini, perpetual climate conference in my pocket.
Matt Trudeau, CEO of Nori
Whenever I meet someone who is a leader in an organization that has to do with planet-friendly technology, I connect them with 4WARD.VC because I believe in coordinating efforts and I trust Matt to lead us.
Dave Hertig, CEO of Boom Company
Having so many talented startups clustered here has been brilliant. I’ve met some amazing startups that I might not have otherwise met, and connected them with some of our corporate partners as well.
Hendrik Dik, Climate Lead of MassChallenge Switzerland
4WARD.VC is an excellent resource to keep up to date on developments in Climate Tech. They have built an amazing ecosystem of Entrepreneurs, Investors and enablers. They are always up to date with new and interesting information.
Solange Silva, ex Climate VC at Blue Horizon Ventures
4WARD is doing an outstanding job in fostering the development of the sustainable revolution.
Roberto Bortoletti, VC at UnaTerra
4WARD.VC has been our super connector in more ways than one. I'm excited for our growing partnership with 4ward's team to scale the business, create value for our investors and accelerate the positive climate impact we're creating.
Greg Laptevsky, CEO of Myro
Matt, I would like to thank you very much for what to do. When you said that the acceleration program will provided me with a lot of value, I couldn't believe it. But after yesterday I am sure it will be. I already have 5-6 meetings booked. I just finished a meeting with ABinBev and they invite us to an acceleration program with a budget of $100K
Pawel Ciesielski, CEO of Maas Loop
4WARD has a really comprehensive suite of services to help founders like myself. Other communities I've joined don't provide support in so many different areas.
Jacquelin Buxton, Co-Founder of Tres Cool
4ward is providing a unique community that brings together investors, entrepreneurs, and key resources for the community that is making it easier to find and grow the climate tech sector.
Logan Grizel, VC at MUUS
As far as I have been able to find, there is no other organization that is pulling together in an open community all the stakeholders for advancement of climate tech to solve the very critical problems we have in the world today
Karen Rands, Kugarand Capital Holdings
Best organized climate solution aggregator on the planet
Marc Diamond, CEO of Ecoco
These guys add so much value to people in the climate tech space!
Frequently Asked Questions
What does it cost?
Membership to Climate Techies is ONLY $120/yr or $12/mo.
Seems like a steal considering the networking, events, $230k in credits, right?
We wanted to ensure EVERYONE could afford to join – because we NEED all stakeholders onboard to tackling climate change.
Why join if there are other free communities?
Because quality has a price, you’re serious about accelerating your career and while local networks are great, going global is the key to unlocking MAJOR growth and value for you and your company/mission.
What’s it worth landing a landmark client in Europe, finding funding in the US, signing a distributor in Latam, getting a grant in Dubai, partnering with PE fund in Asia or landing your dream job in sustainability?
You don’t get THOSE type of opportunities with tiny local or industry specific groups or just networking with lots of climate job seekers or founders – it’s time to play at a higher level.
And your time is worth more than $10/mo…
Is this considered an official endorsement from our/my company?
Why do I need to pay?
Building and running one of the largest climate tech communities globally has a TON of costs and effort associated. Do you give your product and 100s of hours away free to your all of clients?
We need 4WARD.VC to be sustainable if we’re going to help drive sustainable change and action for all.
Plus, if membership isn’t worth at least 10x with all the resources, partnerships, JVs, networking, events etc…, you’re not leveraging our community & platform very effectively. It’s time to get to work hustling and making things happen through collaboration!
And that’s what we’re here to help foster!
How does the 30-day Money Back Guarantee work?
If you’re not happy, we’ll refund you, no questions asked (other than about how best we can improve the community, program, events and value of course 🙂
That said, our goal is to deliver 10-100x the value through powering partnerships, networking, sales, investment, hiring etc.
So to be honest, if it’s not “worth” $12/mo, you’d really have to be trying hard to not leverage and take advance of our massive ecosystem, community, platform and resources…
Do you have a special program/pricing for Teams and Corporates?
Of course we do!
If you’re interested in using your corporate employee/career development, biz dev and events budget on something with a MUCH higher impact and ROI than traditional overpriced seminars or corporate innovation gurus, overcrowded conferences or outdated or boring online courses, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org today for more info on our Climate Techies Corporate Program and get your team onboarded into the most active and networked global community for climate professionals.
Send Gina an email for more info the special deal we have for teams and additional perks we’ve offer and unlock for your organization – all for 10-100x cheaper than some silly Big 4 Consultant or shipping your team to the latest XYZ conference.
Can I expense the Membership to my company or corporate?
Sure, why not? We’ll send you an invoice to share with the finance team and certainly think our $12/mo or $120/yr at least 10-100x’s the value of other career and business development opportunities and training you’d otherwise be expensing…
