2030 Startuplab goal is to provide a meeting arena that promotes real climate action.
Founded in 2020, we have enabled many successful collaborations through joint effort from the corporate and startup ecosystem in Norway. Now, we're ready for batch #5.
Startuplab is Norway's largest tech incubator and most active early stage investor.
We work in the intersection between ambitious tech startups and the biggest corporations in Norway.
2030 is our contribution to accelerating climate and environmental action from Norway.
2030 is a program by Startuplab, but it’s a joint effort from the political, corporate and startup ecosystem in Norway.
The program has been supported by Bergen, Vestland, Stavanger and Oslo municipality. It was born in the Innovation District in Bergen together with our partners GC Rieber and DNB. We have had 34 corporate partners through the program so far, and met with hundreds of cleantech startups.
IPCCs report #6 states that our unsustainable energy use, lifestyle and patterns of consumption lead to widespread impacts and losses to nature and people. These changes will continue to intensify the longer we wait to take real climate action. Every year matters, every choice matters.
There is no question about it - climate change is a threat to human and planetary health. There is a rapidly closing window of opportunity to secure a livable future for all. The clock is ticking…
Although halting climate change entirely may be beyond our reach, we have the ability to decelerate its progression. To mitigate the severe repercussions of climate change, it is imperative to achieve a state of "net zero" carbon emissions by 2050 or earlier.
Net zero signifies that, overall, the amount of carbon released into the atmosphere is offset by an equivalent amount that is removed.
Every year matters, and every choice matters.
