100+ German Climate Tech Startups To Know
From Energy and Food, to Materials and Transport

We took to LinkedIn again to round up the German climate tech CEO’s you really need to know. We knew the German climate tech scene was impressive, but this list is bigger than we could ever have imagined 🇩🇪

A few observations:

  • Berlin is clearly Germany’s climate hotspot, with over half of the listed companies are based out of the country’s capital city.
  • Hard Tech representation is strong, with Energy, Food, Materials and Transport making up the bulk of Germany’s climate scene.
  • There’s plenty of capital to go around, with many of the top European climate funds being headquartered in Germany.
  • There’s deep experience at play, with several of the founders of these companies having previously started or worked at German unicorns.

If there’s someone you think we’ve missed, please add them to the list here.
