VentureClash creator, Connecticut Innovations, is seeking to be at the forefront in creating jobs and venture returns through direct investments in new companies tackling climate change and the needs for adaptation in our Connecticut, national and global economies.

In collaboration with other state partners, Connecticut Innovations hosts an annual climate-focused pitch series.

VentureClash was created in 2016 to seek out promising early-stage companies around the globe looking to open a headquarters location in Connecticut. The initiative has seen great success in bringing high-impact businesses to the state, spanning key areas like insurtech, fintech and digital health.

VentureClash Climate Edition singularly focuses on solution-oriented climate companies, giving Connecticut the chance to invest in groundbreaking ideas that can fast-track climate-related innovations, strengthen the state’s environmental resilience and create new job opportunities.
If selected, presenting companies will receive $5,000 to come to Connecticut and present in front of key stakeholders, corporate partners, state agencies, investors and other key members of the ecosystem.

Presenting companies will have a chance at further investment and strategic collaborations with our event partners.
