The world's #1 hiring platform for the climate workforce

Climatebase is focused on solving what they see as the #1 challenge facing climate companies: hiring.

Climatebase helps climate businesses hire the top mission-driven talent they need to succeed, while helping people discover opportunities to work in climate and transition into the space. With nearly 250k monthly users — entirely from organic word-of-mouth growth — they're already widely regarded as the leading platform for climate jobs.

Their vision is to become the “LinkedIn for climate”: the central hub for climate jobs, education, and community for professionals and organizations working in climate. Their mission: mobilize talent to accelerate climate solutions.

Hundreds of climate organizations have hired thousands of people from the nearly 100k job applications sent through Climatebase. They've made "working in climate" become mainstream within 3 years of launch with media coverage by Bloomberg, Washington Post, Barrons, Techcrunch, CNBC, and more.

Climatebase contributes to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 8 (Decent work and economic growth) and 13 (Climate action).

Climatebase partnered with Enduring Planet to:

  • Grow their business development team
  • Expand their Fellowship Program to support bigger cohorts

Using RBF to supercharge bootstrapping

Thanks to Climatebase Memberships for hiring, Climatebase's MRR has been increasing every month. This led the team to realize they could supercharge growth by utilizing Enduring Planet's RBF instrument to expand their business development team and scale up their Fellowship Programs faster.

As founders who had limited prior knowledge of debt financing, they appreciated the deal's clear and transparent terms and conditions, as well as the benefits versus risks. They also found it helpful to review multiple RBF options with different milestones associated with them, so they could pick the agreement that best aligned with their future projections and strategy.

If your organization's revenue is growing every month, and you are looking to raise capital, you should at least subsidize part of your next round with RBF.
