ReGen Climate Tech Accelerator Announces First Cohort of Startups

ReGen Climate Tech Accelerator

The ReGen Accelerator, a New Haven, Conn.-based partnership of Kaplak Ventures and ClimateHaven, launched its inaugural cohort of climate tech companies.

The ReGen program will take place at ClimateHaven, near Yale University in New Haven. Its initial cohort is comprised of a diverse group of startups focused on addressing various environmental challenges through innovative technology, from renewable energy solutions and carbon capture technologies to sustainable agriculture and waste reduction systems.

The cohort includes:

The inaugural ReGen Accelerator participants include:

  •     Global Biochar, which is implementing a strategy to mitigate the climate crisis, while addressing food security.
  •     Tolam Earth, a digital marketplace for high-quality, high-impact carbon offsets to help organizations reach sustainability goals.
  •     TeamStack.ai, which predicts and drives performance of organizations by harnessing the collective intelligence of teams.
  •     Aich2, which is engineering a novel hydrogen ecosystem, built around Solid Hydrogen carriers, that is economically sustainable at scale.
  •     Tesleon, incubated out of Midnight Oil Collective, which is the creator of “Captain Moriah’s Map Of The World,” an animated series and transmedia franchise designed to inspire children to pursue climate activism.

As part of ReGen, these selected companies will undergo an intensive two-month training designed to accelerate their growth and impact. The program is predicated on the “Dreams and Details” strategy framework developed by Kaplak Ventures Senior Partners Jim Hagemann Snabe (Chair, Siemens; former Chair, Maersk, and co-CEO of SAP) and Mikael Trolle (former CEO, Volleyball Denmark). In addition to strategy training, the program includes mentorship from industry experts, access to a network of investors and strategic partners, and tailored resources to help the cohort companies scale their solutions. 

The first ReGen program will culminate on May 28, 2024 with the ReGen Showcase: a demo day and networking event at ClimateHaven during which the cohort startups will publicly pitch their technologies and share their learnings from the program. The event will be held on the eve of the Yale Innovation Summit, an innovation gathering in New Haven.
