Climate Dragon’s Den – Presenting the Future Leaders in Climate Finance

The International Climate Finance Accelerator (ICFA) Luxembourg is a unique public-private partnership created in 2018 with the aim to support and scale innovative and high-impact climate solutions by accelerating first- and second-time fund managers with a developed and tested investment strategy focusing on climate action.

Since its inception, seven cohorts have been onboarded to the program, thereby supporting 34 climate fund managers, who are expected to raise well over three and a half billion euros in assets under management. We have just selected our seventh cohort – the 2023 Cohort – that is composed of six high-impact fund managers offering innovative climate change solutions.
During this event, these six future leaders in climate finance will present themselves whereafter they will face a jury of experienced public and private investors.
