Clim8, a French start-up from Cyberport community that develops intelligent thermal textiles, recently completed a Series A round and raised €2.75 million.  The round was led by investors with extensive expertise in deep-tech and industrial innovation, including Seventure Partners, Agileo Ventures, and the Deveaux Group.

Clim8’s patented technology uses tiny thermal sensors embedded in the textile to monitor the wearer’s skin temperature in real time. Then, depending on the wearer’s environment, activity, and specified preferences, the system activates or deactivates heating zones to regulate the temperature and keep the wearer comfortably warm.  Additional personalisation settings are also possible using Clim8’s accompanying app.

Since founding the company in 2016 and spending its formative years with the Cyberport Incubation Programme, Clim8 now generates more than 50% of its sales from abroad. Its intelligent textile is being incorporated into the products of premium outdoor sports equipment brands in Europe (Odlo, Ixon), South Korea (K2 Korea), Japan (The North Face), and the US (W.L. Gore, Burton).

The fresh capital will enable Clim8 to bring its technologies to new industries (including industrial and defence) and international markets, to consolidate its R&D department and create the “Clim8 Lab”, which will empower the start-up’s product development, prototyping capabilities and further expand its IP portfolio.  Clim8 will also build new strategic collaborations to strengthen the Clim8 team, bolster its growth, and extend its leadership in the connected textiles market.
