Tech entrepreneur Mick Liubinskas has mapped the Australian and New Zealand climate tech ecosystem to give everyone a better view of the big picture when it comes to dealing with climate change.
His new venture, Climate Salad, has set out to help startup founders building technology solutions to climate problems get more customers, find great people and reach their potential.
It’s a collaborative effort between Climate Salad and HolonIQ – the first map of a fast-growing startup sector.
Don’t worry if a company you know is not on the map. Liubinskas found several hundred startups tackling climate change problems but wanted to paint a picture of the breadth of the solutions, rather than a top 100 chart.
“This is not the top 100, it’s a representative spread across stage, sector, regions. We have over 580 companies sourced, processed and reviewed,” he said.
“Most of all I’m thrilled to see the map in the wild. To see so many good companies. To know that there were more than 400 other companies that we found but didn’t make the list.
“To know there is probably another 400 working away and doing great things. It gives me hope. Huge thanks to the co-founders for all your hard work. A reminder, this is a beta. A version 1.
“Please help us make this better and better to show the world that Australia and New Zealand have some amazing climate tech companies having a huge impact. “
