After convincing judges during a competitive round of pitching held in March 2015, Coolar advanced into the first stage of EIT Climate-KIC Germany’s accelerator programme.
From April 2015 onwards, this will not only allow two of the team members to devote all of their time to Coolar, it will also provide office space in the Green Garage on Berlin’s EUREF Campus. The campus is a hub for innovation dealing with energy efficiency and resource scarcity. On top of that and most importantly Coolar will be able to benefit from Climate-KIC Germany’s vast network of other founders, business angels, venture capital investors, as well as start-up coaches and advisors.
“As the original idea for Coolar emerged at the Climate-KIC 2012 Summer School in Zurich and was further developed with the Climate-KIC Greenhouse pre-incubation programme, we are particularly pleased to be able to continue building Coolar within this clean-tech start-up ecosystem”, commented Coolar’s Julia Römer.
