India Climate Investment Conclave 2021
India Climate Investment Conclave 2021 is India’s first of its kind, pioneering convening by Impact Investors Council (IIC) focused exclusively on mainstreaming capital for early-stage, climate-tech innovations. A springboard of futuristic ideas and experiences from the leading industry stakeholders.
IIC’s two-day virtual conclave will unearth the transformative potential of early-stage, tech-driven start-ups in fighting Climate Change and building back Bharat.
As India is focusing on building back from the shocks of Covid-19, we believe the role of ‘climate’ as a sector becomes more central now than ever in strengthening and sustaining our recovery efforts. The Early-stage climate-tech start-up ecosystem in segments such as – energy efficiency and access, sustainable mobility (transport), waste management, agriculture and food etc. – shows untapped opportunity and tremendous potential to generate unique innovations that can help address the multi-dimensional effects of climate change on lives and livelihoods.
The current ecosystem for climate-tech startups in India lacks a coherent narrative and a distinct identity, notwithstanding the ability of these innovative solutions to create climate impact at scale. There is an urgent need for climate related start-up investments to evolve from a niche narrow asset class to a more mainstream element of the impact investing and venture capital ecosystem in the country.
