Startup Grants

Access our ever-expanding list of grants for biodiversity startup companies. From ideation to prototype to feasibility categories, we aim to cover them all. As this list grows we plan to organize them by category, country and region so check back regularly for updates (and sign up for the newsletter updates!). The most up to date information will always be in the forum.

Nature-Positive Grants

The following is a list of sources for nature-positive grants. We will refine and categorize this over time as we expand the list. Remember, just because your startup is currently based in a different country does not mean you cannot qualify for the grant. You may simply be able to create a registered office in the target country and immediately qualify. The same applies for competitions and pre-seed funding (e.g. the UK's SEIS & EIS tax incentive funding).
