Support to grow
The Zero Carbon Challenge supports early stage ideas, projects, or businesses that help to lower carbon emissions and are ready to grow!
Early stage projects
Get your ideas into action!
Are you working on a project or startup that is ready to go to the next level? We're here to support people to get their ideas off the ground with a burst of energy and support.
Help your startup grow!
Do you have a team, business, or opportunity you are already building that could use more support, profile, and funding? We're ready to connect you to mentors and resources to help you grow.
