As more and more people are aware of the environmental impacts and causes of climate change, they are becoming conscious to reduce the carbon footprint and use sustainable solutions. This is the same that co-founders of Berlin-based Klima got during the backpacking trip of one of them from Alaska to Patagonia. Klima focuses on combating climate change with tech-for-good projects such as promoting quality journalism, civil discourse, and women empowerment.
Secures €4.9M seed funding
The climate app Klima secured a $5.8 million (nearly €4.9 million) seed funding round led by Christian Reber, Jens Begemann, Niklas Jansen, e.ventures, HV Holtzbrinck Ventures and 468 Capital. With this funding, Klima will launch its beta version, double its team of eight in a couple of months and further develop the online community so that subscribers can share their journey of achieving zero emissions with others.
