Good morning, Europe 🌳
Today we’ll look at last week’s:
💰 closed rounds,
💸 upcoming rounds,
💼 new jobs,
📰 climate news, and
📢 Platform Updates
ClimatEU = ClimateU
We’ve spent months discussing with branding agencies, the community, and friends, what a better name for ClimatEU would be. Why? We’ve had many non-European companies and investors join the platform, the company is constantly misspelled, and the name did not sound inclusive to those based outside of Europe.
After long discussions, we realized that the original name: “ClimateU” is still the name that best fits our vision - to create a place for YOU - a platform that helps U fight climate change, no matter what your background or career path is.
You’ll now find us under the same domain, just without the capitalized “E”.
2️⃣ Your talent profile / job preferences
Setting up your job preferences and talent profile on ClimateU hasn’t had the greatest user interface until now, so we gave it a simplified makeover. You can now just fill out and update your preferences here.
3️⃣ ClimateU Internship
We’re looking for an entrepreneurial all-rounder and climate enthusiast who wants to join us for 6 months and who wants to work with us directly in Barcelona’s Norrsken House from October onwards. We need someone to help with all things operations, marketing, data entry… - someone who can solve problems, is passionate about climate-tech, and who can do repetitive work/figure out how to better automate it.
