Climate tech incubator ClimateHaven officially launches; 17 startups getting initial support


ClimateHaven, a New Haven-based climate tech incubator, announced it is beginning to provide support to 17 startups aimed at addressing climate change.

A formal launch of ClimateHaven, with a ribbon cutting ceremony, is planned for Thursday afternoon at its 770 Chapel St. headquarters.

In the past three months, 17 climate tech startups have been accepted for participation in the nonprofit’s competitive program.

Blue Green Materials, for example, is focused on producing construction materials from the ocean with an aim of decarbonizing the building industry. Another startup, Cool Amps, is recycling lithium-ion batteries, according to ClimateHaven’s website.

Gov. Ned Lamont and several state and local dignitaries are expected to attend the grand opening, which coincides with the Yale Clean Energy Conference.

Ryan Dings, ClimateHaven CEO, called the 17 startups a “dynamic mix of innovative, forward-thinking entrepreneurs.”

“We are honored to support them in their efforts to achieve carbon neutrality for our planet,” Dings said.

ClimateHaven is a nonprofit innovation hub, and it will offer the entrepreneurs support such as physical incubation space, workshops, programming, and access to resources and networks to scale their endeavors.

ClimateHaven has been transforming its space on Chapel Street for the effort, with an initial 10,000 square feet near completion and another 8,000 square feet to be ready early next year.

The startups have already started working with mentors and beginning their moves into the space.

In September, ClimateHaven, in partnership with Kaplak, launched the ReGen Accelerator program, also at 770 Chapel St., to support climate tech companies across two programs in 2024. 

ReGen for Startups runs from April through June 2024 and will focus on pre-seed and seed-stage founders tackling the challenge of technology development. ReGen for Scaleups will run from September through November 2024 and support Seed and Series A companies aiming to commercialize their technologies.
