A Global Program Scaling Climate Tech Startups
At ClimateHaven – A climate innovation hub created by Yale University and Connecticut Innovations
Our Kaplak ReGen Accelerator at ClimateHaven is THE growth opportunity for early-stage startups working to decarbonize at scale across five sectors: Energy, Real Estate, Food, Transportation, and Health.
During our three-month programs, we take 10 companies on a deep dive into the ‘Dreams & Details’ framework: a proven leadership and strategy method developed and used by senior executives to accelerate decarbonization at some of the largest organizations in the world, including Maersk and FLSmidth. This framework, plus our advisory services, help you make the jump from founder to CEO, and provide a blueprint for your ‘stakeholder story’ and strategy.
We also provide our founders with access to capital, customer introductions, and a world-class mentor network.
And the journey doesn’t end at Demo Day. Upon graduation, our founders are assigned one of our ‘Kaplaks’: global business leaders who support your growth with their subject matter expertise, leadership experience, and connectivity to their global networks.
Decarbonizing the global economy is the greatest opportunity of our time. We believe that with a proven leadership model and a powerful network of support, we can launch the next generation of breakthrough companies. Find out how you can become one of them.

How the Dreams & Details model has been used at scale
The ‘Dreams & Details’ leadership framework, created by Jim Hagemann Snabe (former Chairman, Maersk; Chair, Siemens & Northvolt) and Mikael Trolle (former Danish National Volleyball Coach), provides the tools, as well as a unique ‘Strategy Map’, for each of our founders to outline their ambitious dream and identify the crucial details required to realize that dream.
