Opportunity for academics and practitioners to transform the industries that have the most impact on the environment with up to £250,000 investment


Zinc runs a venture builder programme to support founders from diverse backgrounds to build evidence-based companies around social missions. Their next programme is focused on transforming the industries that have the most impact on environmental crisis. Founders will receive up to £250,000 investment in their business and 12 months of intensive support.


They are looking for exceptional individuals who want to build new commercial ventures to tackle the environmental crisis. They are also looking for “Visiting Fellows” to join their network: experts and advisors from business, academia, design, technology and the public sector who support Founders and their newly created ventures by offering expertise in the form of talks, workshops, office hours and access to research and partners.
