After completing a very successful first round, the CEEZER Carbon Coalition program is now accepting applications for its second cohort. 

The program is an initiative of high-quality carbon credits platform CEEZER and aims to empower start-ups in the voluntary carbon market (VCM) and bridge the gap between ideation and commercialization.

The CEEZER Carbon Coalition helps companies in their earliest stages overcome the typical difficulties project developers face, such as getting a grasp of buy needs, raising buyer awareness, handling contacts and dealing with registries, carbon credit pricing, and so on.

Carla Woydt, Chief Impact Officer at CEEZER, told the Carbon Herald: “After the completion of the first cohort, we eagerly anticipate the new round. We have been involved in remarkably exciting projects, and we are pleased to note that some have already achieved successful sales of carbon credits.”

“The program’s dedicated focus on providing go-to-market support for project developers has resonated strongly with our graduates. We anticipate effectively guiding another cohort into the market, thereby facilitating growth, and contributing to climate protection,” Woydt said.

What The CEEZER Carbon Coalition Alumni Are Saying

To gain a better understanding of what startups can expect from joining the program, we spoke to one of its recent graduates, Felix Harteneck, founder of carbon dioxide removal (CDR) company InPlanet

InPlanet is the first CDR AgTech startup to work at scale with the unique conditions of tropical soils using Enhanced Rock Weathering (ERW). 

What were your expectations going into the CEEZER Carbon Coalition program? Were these met?

We joined the CEEZER Carbon Coalition with the goal of accessing a specialized onboarding process tailored for innovative carbon removal projects. Having achieved our aim, InPlanet’s projects are now available to interested buyers on CEEZER’s marketplace, as we continue to solidify our registration with top carbon removal registries.

Surpassing our expectations, the program offered extensive insights into the broader carbon market landscape, providing invaluable learnings for project developers through multiple group sessions.

What were the most helpful resources to you from the program and why?

Two sessions focused on corporate climate strategies and carbon procurement processes. As a carbon intermediary, CEEZER typically fosters deeper connections with a broader spectrum of buyers compared to traditional project developers. Hence, we found these insights into buyers and the market to be especially relevant within the program.

What would you say to startups considering applying for the next cohort?

We strongly encourage early-stage project developers to consider the program highly beneficial. We recommend maximizing the value of the 1-on-1 sessions with the dedicated CEEZER account manager, as they offer invaluable market insights and constructive feedback on project design documents.

Applications are still open until April 15th, 2024, and can be submitted on the program’s official page.
