According to the report, 85% of corporates agree that there is a significant increase in focus on corporate Climate Tech, driven by enhanced government regulations, growing social pressure, and the rise of internal Climate Tech KPIs within corporations. "The gap between climate innovators and corporate buyers is the biggest obstacle to adopting innovations. We aim to overcome these barriers and foster the implementation of climate tech innovations," said Nastasya Savina, Director of Innovation Zero Awards & Showcase. The report states startups are not the default suppliers for corporates in Climate Tech: most of the corporations have only up to 10% share of startups among all sustainable suppliers, and over half of corporations have more complex requirements for startups vs mature companies. Currently, the primary reason why corporations collaborate with startups is to pioneer innovations (42%), and the main barrier is identifying the 'right startups.' Research indicates that from the initial search to the first deal, startups may make up to 18 attempts over a period extending up to 2 years. While networking is considered one of the most popular methods for connection (64%), it remains an unclear and unstructured process. Startups say that corporates often have long and bureaucratic decision-making chains with a lack of a standardised procurement process (77%). The study highlighted that 88% of corporates believe that a discovery platform would aid in uncovering the latest sustainable solutions, while 80% of startups are eager to cooperate with corporations more efficiently and promote their innovations through such a platform. "Our aim is to empower those making a positive impact with valuable insights. We are honoured to support the Innovation Zero Award, which seeks to connect innovators in Climate Tech with corporations, fostering collaboration for a better future," Ksenia Sternina, Managing Partner, Duamentes.
