ClimateClever

During the beginning of the year ClimateClever launched a new partnership program for local governments to help them empower their communities to take action on climate change, and since then, we’ve seen more growth for the dynamic duo behind this social enterprise. 

Founder and CEO, Vanessa Rauland was joined by Alexander Karan in 2019 after receiving initial investment as co-founder and CTO and now, they’ve announced a securement of a second round of investment from a private trust during the COVID-19 pandemic, bringing the total capital raised by the company to $450,000! Read the full update on their latest investment on the Startup News blog here.
