Investing for Climate Impact: PwC and Wolves Summit Host Climate Tech Pitching Track, Launch Call for CEE Climate Tech Report Nominees

Wroclaw, Poland. 24 May 2022. Earlier this month, Wolves Summit and PwC Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) announced their partnership with the goal of matching global impact investors with climate tech start-ups in the CEE region. As part of that partnership, they organised on 24 May at the Wolves Summit in Wroclaw a Climate Tech Pitching Track as part of The Great Pitch Contest, held a panel discussion on the state of climate tech investment, and announced plans to produce a CEE edition of the PwC Net Zero Future 50 report. Climate tech start-ups across the CEE region are invited to submit nominations for possible inclusion in the report by 3 July 2022.

Fundraising and investment activity in Central Eastern Europe (CEE) continues to rise, as do the number of start-ups and unicorns. In this piece, we combine insights gleaned from speaking to investors at three very different firms: Multiple Capital (Fund of funds), Uniqa Ventures (Uniqa Insurance’s VC arm), and Wille Finance (Family office). These insights help paint a clearer picture of the advantages and benefits of investing in CEE start-ups and businesses, including the region’s large number of highly-skilled developers; its passionate and circumspect founders; low starting valuations; and exciting opportunities for high impact at local levels.
