Main Sequence Challenge: Decarbonise the Planet

Decarbonise the Planet

What can be done right now to help avoid a climate catastrophe?

Challenge Brief

It is important to decarbonise the way energy, food and materials being used is produced, while finding new technologies that capture and store carbon to truly reverse its impact. Innovative startups building solutions that will make an impact in decarbonising are being funded. Anyone who is working on decarbonisation projects including, but not limited to, renewable energy, recycling, synthetic biology for new materials, carbon sequestration, conversion of industrial processes from hydrocarbon fuels to renewable, hydrogen generation/storage, low carbon footprint food technology and energy conservation please contact us to discuss your work.

What is a Main Sequence Challenge?

Main Sequence is Asia Pacific’s deep-tech venture fund, founded by Australia’s national science agency, CSIRO. The valuable companies of the next few decades will be those tackling epic problems for a planet in trouble. They believe that the combined force of entrepreneurship + science can solve these problems. Main Sequence challenges led by specific members of the investment team guide them to discover, create and fuel companies to deliver these solutions at scale to the planet.

Main Sequence is excited to hear about what you are building. If invited to come and pitch, be comfortable. They like founders with their own styles. Leave some time for questions, because they are often very curious. This is a two-way conversation. You can ask them questions, too.

Some areas to focus on:

  • Introductions, your background and your ambition.
  • Demonstrating the opportunity size, the solution and competitor landscape.
  • Explaining your long term view, and the path to get there.
