Klimate.co, Copenhagen's Climate-Tech Trailblazer, Bags a Hefty €3.5M in Seed Capital
In a riveting turn of events, Klimate.co, the Copenhagen-based climate-tech dynamo, has secured a whopping €3.5 million in seed funding. The investment round was anything but ordinary, featuring a star-studded lineup of existing backers like Rockstart and Denmark's Export and Investment Fund (EIFO), who joined forces with newcomers Eneco Ventures and Helen Ventures to spearhead the financial influx.
Katja Grothe-Eberhardt, Founder and CEO of Klimate.co, said: "This investment is a testament to our commitment to combating climate change and advancing carbon removal technologies. We are grateful for the support of our investors, and this funding will be instrumental in further accelerating our commercial efforts, enhancing our platform's capabilities, and ultimately driving our mission to scale up carbon removal capacity."
Robert Blom, Investment Director, Eneco Ventures, commented: "We are excited to partner with Klimate. co in their quest to make a meaningful impact in the fight against climate change. We believe their CO₂ asset management platform is a game-changer in how businesses manage their carbon removal, particularly for future removals."
Currently boasting a lean but highly effective team of 11, Klimate. co has already made significant inroads into the U.S. and Northern European markets. But here's the kicker: according to data from CDR.fyi, this isn't just any startup. Klimate. co has skyrocketed to become one of the globe's most substantial purveyors of permanent carbon removal solutions. Yes, you read that right—worldwide!
So, what's the game plan for this freshly minted capital? Expansion, my friends, and not just the run-of-the-mill kind. We're talking global reach, additional hires to bolster their already stellar team, and—wait for it—significant enhancements to the Klimate.co software platform.
Diving deeper into what makes Klimate.co tick, this differs from your average startup. This is a company on a mission to wage war against climate change through avant-garde carbon management tech. Their proprietary platform doesn't just manage CO2; it transforms it.

In essence, Klimate.co isn't just in the business of carbon management; they're in the business of future-proofing our world.
