Our mission is to foster science & technology innovation for a sustainable planet. In 2021, we re-doubled our efforts at Larta on this mission. We served 572 ‘innovators’ –entrepreneurs and startups across six impact areas that collectively form Larta’s ‘sustainability agenda’: Environment & Climate, Agriculture & Food, Cleantech & Energy, Biosciences & Healthcare, Marine & Oceans, and Education & Community. We hope this 2021 Impact Report provides you with a high-level understanding of Larta Institute’s contribution towards a more inclusive, just, and sustainable planet.

Since 2004, we have supported thousands of startups to use non-dilutive government grant funding to translate their ideas into commercially-viable businesses.
