We are committed to supporting technology entrepreneurs, start-ups, and scale-ups in developing greener technology

Each year we source inspiring technology entrepreneurs to take part in BetaDen's accelerator programme, and it is now more important than ever to put extra focus on assisting entrepreneurs and businesses developing technology that works to support the Net Zero carbon initiative.

Net Zero refers to a state in which the greenhouse gases going into the atmosphere are balanced by removal out of the atmosphere. The term Net Zero is important because – for CO2 at least – this is the state at which global warming stops. See below a showcase of BetaDen's Cohort founders who are already working on this goal.

During a 12-month period, ChangeMaker3D worked in partnership with United Utilities to successfully design, 3D-print and install a wastewater chamber at one of the utility company’s test facilities in Cheshire. With testing now complete, the partners say it proves the huge potential of 3D printing for construction and could lead to widespread benefits for other sectors and regions.
