Climate tech startup Skytree secures €2.5M from EIC Accelerator

Nov 15, 2023

Climate tech startup Skytree secures €2.5M from EIC Accelerator November 9, 2023 Skytree, a pioneering climate tech startup dedicated to advancing innovative CO2 capture and reutilization solutions, announced it has been selected to receive European Innovation Council (EIC) Accelerator  funding, securing a €2.5 Million non-dilutive grant, which brings the total funds raised by Skytree in 2023 to €13 million. In addition, EIC’s accelerator commits to participate in the next round of funding, a Series A scheduled for Spring 2024. Part of the Horizon Europe program created to increase Europe’s competitiveness in science and innovation, the EIC accelerator provides start-up and scale-up companies with the support needed to advance technologies and bring to market breakthrough innovations. Among the 648 submissions, Skytree emerged as one of the leading 47 companies overall, and one of four in the Netherlands, following a highly competitive evaluation involving experienced investors, scientists and entrepreneurs. The Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO)  and  Zaz Ventures  assisted Skytree during the submission process. “The EIC funding award recognizes the great potential of Skytree’s DAC technology,” said Rob van Straten, Skytree CEO. “As we prepare to ship the first Skytree DAC units to customers in Europe and North America early next year, we are honored to have been recognized by the EIC and are grateful to team IRIS from RVO for their support during the process. We look forward to leveraging the additional capital to accelerate our product development and commercialization roadmap.” Skytree’s proprietary DAC technology captures CO2 from ambient air. The company’s first commercially available modular unit, Skytree Cumulus, will enable controlled environment agriculture (CEA) businesses to generate their own CO2on-site and combat climate change by eliminating reliance on fossil fuel based CO2.
