World Fund is the biggest European Climate Tech VC fund investing in startups that contribute to solving the climate crisis. It focuses on the key emitting sectors Energy, Food & Agriculture, Manufacturing, Buildings and Transport. World Fund aims to fill two significant investment gaps for climate tech: when tech goes from lab to market andwhen it leaves the pilot stage to scale. World Fund will invest from Seed to Series B stage. World Fund was established by Daria Saharova, Danijel Višević, Craig Douglas, Christian Kroll and Tim Schumacher.
