Welcome to the Decarbonize Demo Day 2022

輪 (United) by Net-ZERO

Startupbootcamp is delighted to have once again partnered with Mitsubishi Corporation and NYK Line to solve the world’s biggest climate challenges. As a partnership, we are united by our passion and vision for the future, a future that collectively we describe as Decarbonize.

On 2nd December, we are proud to present the startups from our Decarbonize 2022 cohort who have reimagined how to accelerate the path towards energy transition. Each startup brings a unique value proposition ranging from paper-based fuel cells and pipeline remote sensing to grid-scale storage and the world's most efficient ceramic engine. This unique hybrid event will be streamed online and attended in person at the Yusen Building in Tokyo.

United, towards a decarbonization journey.
