We believe in the power of an open community

As a mission driven non-profit organization we have only one goal — to accelerate the transition towards a sustainable economy and fight against climate change.

Why we started LFCA

At the beginning of 2019, we – a group of founders from the Berlin startup ecosystem - started discussing possible actions to fight climate change. We were all concerned about the scale of the challenge, but apart from having taken some limited individual measures, none of us really went beyond that. It soon occured to us that we need to do much more – organize, inspire and work collaboratively – to contribute to the fight for a liveable planet for our children.

Berlin 2.0 as the starting point

Boris Wasmuth, the organizer a a networking event titled "Berlin 2.0", invited Fabian Heilemann to hold a "wake-up" presentation at one of the planned community events. After Fabian's talk, we received a lot of positive feedback and interest from fellow entrepreneurs to join up. To build on the momentum, we decided to found a non-profit dedicated to catalyzing business action, signalling to policy makers that the new economy is ready for more climate ambition.
