To develop, train, and fund next-generation entrepreneurs creating breakthrough solutions to help humanity adapt to the impacts of climate change.
A world with data-driven solutions that enable humanity to adapt and thrive in a changing climate.
The Collider launched in 2016 with the opening of its headquarters in downtown Asheville, North Carolina — also known as “Climate City.” We are just steps away from NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information, the world’s largest collection of weather and climate data, and the climate and data scientists who work with the data. We are designed to harness Asheville’s world-renowned assets in climate science and data for climate entrepreneurship.
We are the first entrepreneurship and innovation center in the United States dedicated to building startups who use data – climate, environmental, and socioeconomic – to help the world prepare, adapt, and become resilient in the face of intensifying climate change.
We convene, train, and support entrepreneurs, businesses, and scientists who are building data-driven tools and technologies that equip humanity to prepare, adapt, and become resilient to climate change.
We expand and accelerate the market for climate products and services by convening and connecting mission-aligned investors, companies, governments and academic institutions.
We equip young leaders and emerging talent with the skills, knowledge, and perspectives to lead humanity’s innovative response to climate change.
