Womxn for Climate Tech & Innovation

Enabling Climate & Tech Companies to be more successful, creating a bigger impact and be an example for other industries by scaling diversity.

Our Story

In 2019, we started as a community of change-makers with the goal to enable more womxn to be at the top of the table and create a sustainable future and combat climate change. The initiative was originally created to support womxn in the EIT Climate-KIC accelerator programs back in 2019.

Since then, we have been holding regular events to connect and support womxn in green tech and social impact entrepreneurship and grown a large network of womxn from across the world.

In 2024, the network has developed into a large network of womxn across the globe to enable diverse leadership to thrive in the Climate Innovation ecosystem.

Womxn Network

Our Vision

Our Mission

Balancing the system to establish profitable, fair and future-proof businesses globally.

Our Goals

Increase the percentage of womxn leaders in corporate to balance the system and drive more climate action


Establish diversity criteria in term sheets to enable a different Start-Up culture

Time for ACTIONS not WORDS!

We believe that gender parity in leadership is key to successful climate action. With this initiative, we want to create more inclusive businesses and enable more womxn to enter the field of climate tech and innovation. We want to bring men and women together to the table to break down barriers, create opportunities and solve problems together.

We work across all industry Silos and enable access to people, investment and tools for women in this space that are not available today. We will leverage the potential of other similar networks to collaborate, elevate and enable global change.

Relationships and access are key to the success of under-represented groups in these critical new industries. This will significantly impact how successful humanity is in creating a more sustainable future for life on Earth!
