ENGIE Factory

Why build a new startup with us

Proven venture program

In three years we have launched more than 10 startups with the help of strategic partners who are domain experts in the startup venture building space.

Lean startup methodology

Our program is based on the Lean Start-up methodology and tools such as the Business Model Canvas which provide a structured approach and a process of iteration for founders to quickly validate their business idea.

Insider access to ENGIE expertise & network

Our program is designed for founders without a background in energy. We leverage ENGIE knowledge, networks and resources to help our founders rapidly get up to speed with energy needs and challenges in their chosen focus area and industry.

Funding to launch your startup

Founders are supported by a dedicated venture building team to craft a solution. Once approved by an investment committee, founders get access to early-stage funding and support to kickstart this new independent venture.

What we do

ENGIE Factory partners with entrepreneurs to build new, scalable startups that will impact our climate. We co-build the new business with the founders, provide early-stage funding, and direct access to enterprise-grade resources and networks from ENGIE which gives our startups a competitive advantage and fast track to global growth. 


The climate-tech businesses that our founders build with us are all on the same mission to accelerate decarbonisation and resolve our climate urgency. And the ENGIE Factory team is dedicated to supporting our startups throughout their growth.

How it works

ENGIE Factory works with founders to ideate, validate, launch and commercialise their startups. Each venture is an independent company led by founders. The venture is also backed by ENGIE which gives founders access to global business networks and resources. After the venture is launched, ENGIE Factory continues to support the startup over the next few years through their growth stage - from getting product-market-fit to commercialisation and further fundraising.
