Hardware is hard but hardware will solve the world's hardest problems,

It's been a while I wanted to showcase incredible hardware startups that Sparkmate's team has discovered in the past months,

Everyone is talking about climate change,

But who is talking about the fearless (crazy? 😉) entrepreneurs and makers crafting and industrializing the solutions that drive real change?

I'm super excited to share this list of 20 French companies tackling Climate change :
