Marabou is a community with the mission to save the planet with your idea 

You are an innovator, have a project or a company in climate tech innovation.

Idea to Pre-Seed

you are looking for a first check.

Seed

You need an investor for scaling up.

Market

You want to build a community for your product.

Next Round

You want to get on track for further VC-funded series

Validation

You need scientific evaluation of your idea.

What we do for you

Marabou can only function, if you are successful. To achieve this, we will go on a limb to make your project a success, not only with funding but beyond.

Our community funds innovation between €25,000 and €5 million per round.

Once you are on the platform, we make certain that your project is actually funded.

Together with you, we build a community of funders that will stay with you long after funding.

We have a scientific board that evaluates the climate impact potential of your idea.

We partner with VCs in a deal-flow pipeline for your larger follow-up rounds.

The Marabou community can be your first point of sales in the future.

How Marabou does it

we are NOT a typical crowd investing platform where your project is one among hundreds and where you compete with each other.

We only take projects that the community actually wants to fund.

Together with partners we angel-invest, incubate, accelerate market and crowdfund.

We have skin in the game - Marabou can only succeed if you succeed.

What we fund

  • We can fund ideas before they incorporate
  • Early-stage climate tech startups or even earlier individuals
  • Food and agro-tech, land use, financial services, direct decarbonisation, climate change alleviation, sustainable consumer products, cradle-to-cradle
  • Products, services and innovations that might benefit from an existing community
  • Regions with lower investment density, such as Asia, Latam and also Europe
  • Climate Tech (geo-engineering, CO2-capture);
  • Clean Tech (de-carbonizing existing tech, efficiency solutions);
  • Environmental Tech (ocean cleanup, forestation);
  • Agro & Food Tech (Yield increase, CO2-positive agriculture);
  • Renewable Energy;
  • Digitalisation (as replacement technology, such as carbon credit platforms);
  • Consumer products with positive climate impact

The complete process

Show

You show us your idea and we discuss, how this could work on the platform.

Evaluation

We make a first evaluation with our scientific board - does the idea have potential for positive climate impact?

Deal

We create a deal by setting the equity range, funding goal, time-span.

Vote

We then present it to the community and put it up for a vote if we shall invest together.

Start

When the funding starts, you and Marabou market the funding drive.

Subscription

Our community makes recurrent investments by a monthly subscription, starting at €10 per person and month.

Sharing

This means that your project profits from the marketing efforts of all the previous projects and the next projects benefit from yours.

Funding

Marabou funds one project after the other, when enough subscription money is in our virtual pot, the next project in line is funded.

Guarantee

As long as Marabou as a platform functions, your project will be funded. This is real community funding.

Participation

Once your project is funded, you want to remain active on the platform by communicating and participating.

Ownership

Because you can fundraise the next bigger round when the community believes in you. As long as you stay, you co-own the community, for future marketing, for selling the first batch of products, for proof-of-concept with VCs.

Your Next Steps to Raise Funds With Marabou

1. Connect with us on LinkedIn, show us your idea.
2. We will then have a questionnaire that helps us categorize your project.
3. Then we chat, we will promise you a live-chat even if we can’t fund you.

3 Example Projects

We see more and more forest fires.

When they get close to settlements, they can not be extinguished by firemen and water planes. But they could with a big fat drone.

Stefan Morawitz, one of the first commercial drone builders has a concept to extinguish forest fires and bring safety for many communities. He needs the first €80k to prove his concept.

Vinzenz von Fürstenberg creates a climate project that transfers co2-certificates into rewilding of nature.

With this, we can bind co2 and have an actual impact in climate change.

 

The project is already funded by the EU and we want to put it to the next level with €120k

Transform your home heating radiator in an airfilter against smog and viruses. 

This filter transforms regular heat radiators into an air-purification system. It is able to filter micro dust, even in heavy pollution regions. The filter is so fine that it will reduce aerosol borne virus transmissions.

 

Marabou will participate in the go-to-market with 100k.

About Marabou

It takes the genius of millions to fix our climate

We Marabous are a handful and we looking for the other 999.985 to make every contribution count.

01

WHY INVESTING IN CLIMATE INNOVATION? We believe that neither denial nor protests will save our habitat. But innovation can. $500b per year is needed to in climate innovation. Who inherits a future earth? It’s young people. But they have no say, no gain and no ownership in their own future. We want to change that.

02

WHY US AND YOU AND MARABOU Millenials and Gen Z see greatness where others see obstacles, a trait needed to be climate optimists and act. Innovation is mostly owned and financed by venture capital firms, they have the money, they take the risk, they gain the profits. We want to create a community of young people that becomes a crowd of smart investors into climate innovation.
