What is 4WARD.VC?

We’re building the ultimate climate tech ecosystem – because when you’ve got a dream, it takes a team – and with fighting climate change, we’re all on Team Planet together.

That is the core of what we believe and how we move the world forward!

EVERYTHING that we do is centered around removing friction and increasing collaboration to decarbonize industry and our world faster. Because we’re running out of time!

To accelerate the world, we’re bringing together ALL of the top players in an ecosystem of innovation and urgency to let corporates hit their sustainability/ESG goals, consultants help their clients hit net zero targets, governments promote their region’s energy initiatives and climate tech companies scale their cash-strapped strapped startups.

Ie… climate karma: helping all players push forward and hit their goals.

Because EVERYONE wins when EVERYONE’s winning – that’s our philosophy.

Which all trickles back to 4WARD.VC and our “Partner in Clime” Accelerator

About Our Accelerator

4WARD.VC partners with elite climate & sustainability investors & funds to offer our “Partner in Clime” Growth Program for promising pre-seed to Series A climate companies – because “founder friendly” isn’t enough these days and VCs (and their portfolio companies need an unfair advantage!) 

The Partner in Clime program is a disruptive 12 week sprint where we work ultra hands-on with only 1-2 elite climate startups (from our select climate VC partners) per month to drive major business development, traction and growth – boosting valuations, survival rates & exit outcomes.

By leveraging our world-class climate tech & corporate network plus that of our 250+ mentors (at places like Porsche, Lufthansa, Johnson Matthey, Jetblue, DOE, Hitachi etc…) plus Climate Techies (the largest local-to-global climate community with hubs in 45 cities) in systematic way (which we call “networked growth hacking”), we help help companies prove out their technology/product, land 2-5+ major pilots/customers and decarbonize industry at scale

If you’re interested a top climate fund or accelerator, or a prolific family office or foundation interested in helping your portfolio companies succeed and 10x their impact in less time – ie. looking for a true Partner in Clime to power your major portfolio support and scaling, please contact us today. Space is quite limited as we can only partner with 3-5 elite funds.
