About Marble

Marble is a climate tech venture studio. Our north star is to erase billions of tons from annual greenhouse gas emissions and create a thriving future.

We're proud to be backed by leading climate investors across Europe and the US.

Making Agriculture Climate Resilient

Agriculture is facing a dual imperative; producing more to feed 10 billion people by 2050 while adapting to climate change. Unpredictable weather patterns are leading to larger and more frequent harvest failures, threatening global food security. Plants usually require centuries of natural selection to adapt to environmental changes at a molecular level. Genetic engineering could enhance plants with desirable traits to boost yields while reducing their vulnerability to climatic events.

The Opportunity

We are considering various strategies to increase resilience to biotic and abiotic stress using the power of modern genetic engineering. We are looking for a Founder in Residence to join our next cohort to explore multiple approaches and create the most scalable company to ensure food security.

Skills Profile

We are looking for an entrepreneurial scientist with deep technical expertise to further explore several opportunities and create a high-impact climate company with Marble.

What We Offer

As a Founder in Residence, you will join other stellar individuals who also believe in the need for deep tech solutions to solve hard climate problems. We offer a monthly allowance during the program, pre-seed investment, full-stack support in our venture creation program, mentorship, guidance, access to a network, and more.

How To Apply

We are currently taking applications for the March 2024 cohort. We believe that a diverse group of minds is key to solving the climate crisis. We strongly encourage women and people of color to apply.
