In March, The Community Foundation Mission Investments Company (TCF-MIC) granted $100,000 from its general resources and from its Elm Seeds Fund to ClimateHaven, a new effort to incubate and accelerate climate change entrepreneurs by providing education, tools and resources to help take carbon-reducing technologies to market. Yale University is also a supporter of the new climate tech startup incubator, which intends to be a strong part of the local community with a regional and global reach. “Climate change is the unique challenge that unites both moral imperative and economic opportunity,” said ClimateHaven CEO Ryan Dings in an interview with Yale Ventures. “ClimateHaven has an incredible opportunity to tap into the deep well of brilliance and entrepreneurial talent that exists at Yale University and in New Haven, and support startups that have the potential to scale globally.”
