SOME OF THE STARTUPS WE MENTOR
Isi and Iain have been valuable mentors in the Climate-KIC Accelerator - ECCI. They understand the process of setting up a business that you’re passionate about, and have helped me not only develop and sharpen the proposition but also have been a useful sounding board for ideas. They offer friendly support and informed critique - exactly what is needed, and entirely without condescension or harshness. Thank you :)
Dr. Stephanie Terreni Brown Clean Water Wave
'Aurora Sustainability were my mentors on the Climate Launchpad 2017 - Aurora were an inspiring & brilliant team! They understand that sustainability is a process of strategic proactivity. Their diverse expertise and positive outlook enables them to make the rough and tumble of the business world dam good fun!'
Paul Krogh MSc Innovator and Founder REA3 Energy
Aurora are some of the best mentors I've worked with - everything you want in mentors: positive and committed and providing thoroughly critical, insightful guidance based on their rounded experience in business, academia and the low carbon sector.
As an entrepreneur it can be tough, so having not just the
practical support from Izzy and Iain, but their positive emotional support has been incredibly valuable.
Scott Simpson Co-founder & Managing Director INDUSTRIAL NATURE LTD
I first met Iain when he was pitching at CLP 2016, and Izzy when she spoke at the Edinburgh Sustainable Innovation Conference. Since then they have each been invaluable in supporting myself and the whole team at the Asia Scotland Partnership for the Environment. They helped us enormously at CLP 2017, and Izzy's encouragement and advice has helped us grow from a fledgling idea into a company ready to start actively trading. So much so that we've asked her to formally join our board of advisors, so she can't get away from us just yet!
Ewan Tennant, Co-founder & Director ASPEN LTD
Iain and Izzy were very helpful mentors throughout our preparations for ClimateKIC launchpad finals. They've helped us in presentation preparation and in pitch practice. They were there for us, whenever we needed them.
Dr Monika Tomecka, Ufraction8 Co-founder
It was amazing working with you and most important to me is the openness, clarity of feedback and the commitment you put into developing IntelliDigest and ensuring that We succeed.
Ifeyinwa Kanu, Director IntelliDigest Ltd
“Aurora Sustainability provided a 5-star business training for our team. They helped to identify weaknesses in our idea and the presentation style and following their guidance we delivered one of the best pitches anybody in our team has ever done! Iain and Izzy are very dedicated and experienced mentors that by no means will be useful to any business that takes part in Climate-KIC.”
Anton Puzorjov, Director One Cherry

Aurora’s team are dedicated high energy deliverers. They played an excellent linking and doing role for us to the Scottish Circular Economy network and made the hard yards on the development of partnerships as well as being the dynamo behind the work John Burnside - head of Sustainability HIE Highland - and I and others were able to do in the early stages of the Green Health Agenda. First class performers.
