SHAKE Climate Change Programme Reopens for Food and Agri Firms

| Return|

The SHAKE Climate Change programme is designed to attract entrepreneurs or start-ups that have developed early stage science or tech-based ideas that can have a significant impact on climate change. The programme will also form the basis of a sustainable and socially responsible business within the agri-food (farming and food) sector.

The aim is to make agriculture part of the climate solution, not just a problem. Ideas can relate to any point in the food production chain, which contributes more than a quarter of global climate change emissions.

The programme has a total financial budget of £3.5 million. Over its lifespan, 15 successful ventures will each receive up to a total of £140,000, provided as a convertible interest-free loan. They will also receive two years’ high-quality training and mentoring from leading experts in business and science, to help further develop their ventures.

The programme is open to applications from UK companies and start-ups with ideas and products targeted at the agricultural and food production sectors which will have a positive impact on mitigating climate change.

The next deadline for applications is 15 April 2020.

How To Apply

The programme will continue to support entrepreneurs until 2027.
