The YouWeb incubator boasts a successful history of investments in companies riding the waves of technological transformation, be it in smartphones, social platforms, or generative AI.

With YouWeb IV, the spotlight shifts to a domain of paramount importance: climate change and carbon management. Recognizing the urgency and gravity of these challenges, the incubator is dedicated to nurturing startups that are forging ahead with cutting-edge carbon management technologies. Through financial backing and valuable resources, YouWeb IV seeks to accelerate their progress.

“We are excited to be working with UCLA’s ICM, as well as ASU in the US, as well as some of the best founders and technologists in Carbon Management and Direct Air Capture, including Octavia, which is harnessing GeoThermal energy for Direct Air Capture and Sequestration in Kenya.” – Peter Relan

Noteworthy among its portfolio companies is Octavia, which harnesses geothermal energy for Direct Air Capture and Sequestration in Kenya, demonstrating the diverse range of climate-focused innovations incubated by YouWeb IV.

Championing Climate Pioneers

Among the startups nurtured by YouWeb IV are DACLab, dedicated to advanced Direct Air Capture technology; Polar Defense, specializing in carbon dioxide utilization and sequestration; Optivolt, advancing next-generation solar technology capable of functioning even in shaded areas; and Sykom, a science communications firm committed to effectively conveying the urgency of climate change to all stakeholders.

Driving Climate Action

The launch of YouWeb IV underscores YouWeb Incubator’s unwavering dedication to catalyzing innovation and progress in the realm of carbon management. By providing critical support to early-stage companies and fostering collaborations with leading academic institutions and government initiatives, YouWeb IV is poised to make a substantial impact in the battle against climate change.
