Circklo and Eutopia Join Forces to Support Europe’s Sustainable Start-ups


12 January 2022

Building on their complementary strengths and expertise in the circular economy space, Circklo and Eutopia have entered into a formal partnership to support and enhance Europe’s sustainable start-up ecosystem, helping these become investment and scale-up ready.

According to Federico Cristoforoni, Eutopia’s Co-founder & CEO, “the partnership we have entered into with Circklo represents a natural next step for us. Eutopia is an AI-powered platform to access information about 16,000 climate start-ups in Europe, and Circklo created the first business configurator in the world dedicated to digital start-ups operating in the circular economy space. Together we can do so much more for the digital and sustainable entrepreneurial spirit of the European start-ups, helping them become investment-ready and matchmaking them with the right investors for their scale-up journey.”

Eutopia’s database comprises extensive data on green innovation including financial, technological and impact assessment insights, enhanced scouting capabilities and rankings according to Eutopia’s own classification models and SDGs alignment.

Today’s start-ups need to be supported by the best and benefit from the advice and matchmaking capabilities provided by the best – our Game Changers ecosystem and pool of investors, from angel investors to later stage private equity, have been tailored to offer a one-stop-shop and multiple paths to scale-up for the start-ups we select to join our programmes. No start-up is the same, therefore the entire customer experience we provide to our start-ups is fully tailored to their needs: from investment to POCs, and from go-to-market strategies to exit strategies. We have an exceptional pool of investors, funds, mentors and coaches, and we are ready to support and showcase Europe’s incredible start-ups” said Maria Morais, Circklo’s Chairwoman and Co-founder.

Earlier last year Circklo launched Pitch Club: the first initiative of its kind in the world, completely free and entirely virtual, one where start-ups test their pitches/demos before a panel of judges made up of start-up founders, investment experts and business coaches, and aimed at seed and series A start-ups operating across the digital tech, impact tech and circular economy spectrum.
