A Global Program for Decarbonization Startups

The Kaplak Decarbonization Accelerator, powered by MassChallenge, is a multi-week program designed to help climate tech entrepreneurs scale their innovations and make a massive impact.

We take up to 10 seed-stage companies per cohort, which are introduced to the ‘Dreams & Details’ leadership framework, as well as a network of accomplished global mentors. 

Decarbonizing the planet is the greatest challenge of our time. We believe that with a proven leadership model and a powerful network of support, we can not only meet this challenge but we will also launch a generation of breakthrough companies.

Dreams and Details for a Decarbonized Future 
– Jim Hagemann Snabe’s TED Talk at Cop26

We were inspired to create this program in the wake of our founder Jim Snabe’s work as the chairman of Maersk, where he used the ‘Dreams and Details’ framework as a blueprint for launching 8 container vessels running on carbon neutral methanol by 2024.
