Here is the selection:

Switzerland - Cleantech/New Materials - Healable and sustainable composite material solutions to improve circularity
Spin-off from a Swiss University after 12 years of thorough research in the field of self-healing composites, the startup delivers for the first time an efficient smart and bio-inspired solution for extending the life-time of composite structures. Their patented solution is preimpregnated textiles integrating a typical chemistry and compatible with existing production lines. These new materials enable repeated damage healing, usage as resistant and lightweight materials, easier recycling at the end-of-life. After successful proof-of-concepts, the startup is now setting up 5 engineering projects with clients in the marine and sport industries for summer 2020.
Production scale-up de-risked, 5 applications settlement | TRL: 7 | TAM: €16bn | Next Step: market industrialization | Amount to raise: €1.4m

FRANCE – Agriculture/Sustainable Development – Increasing soil/plant knowledge for better farming practices using low-cost technology
Started in 2016, the company has designed and commercialized a low-cost high-quality system to measure soil and leaf parameters to allow farmers to make informed decisions about their production practices. Commercialized since 2018, 250 systems are currently active in France with new orders coming in.
10 clients/60 users | TRL 9 | TAM 2018 750M€ | Amount to raise: 300K€

SPAIN – Cleantech/Mobility - Using wind power as a complementary propulsion system for the shipping industry
Delivering of an automated wind-assisted propulsion systems that harness renewable energy (wind) as a turn-key solution to all shipowners looking to decrease their fuel-related costs and pollutant emissions, saving up to 30% of the fuel consumption. The patented technology, successfully tested on ground, is in a phase of expansion, with 4 contracts already signed for product deliveries in 2020/21.

US & India - Cleantech/ Consumer Products/ Healthcare Product - Sustainable Menstruation Product good for body, community and environment.
A UN-recognized, 100 Best Time Invention List sustainable consumer products company. Manufacturing world's first 100% biodegradable and compostable sanitary pads from banana and bamboo tree fibre. Patent pending technology to convert agri-waste fibers into absorbent material. Addressing three challenges; chemical based sanitary pads, lack of access to sanitary pads in rural areas, and plastic waste produced by commercial sanitary pads.
1 Patent Worldwide | TAM: $550M USD market in India (only 18% of women currently have access to sanitary pads); $20.5B USD worldwide | Expansion Plan: Scale-up  and launch in Northern America and Europe| TRL: 9 | Traction: 5+ countries  | Amount to raise: € 2.2 m in equity and € 2.30 m in debt 

FRANCE - Cleantech/Energy – Energy storage solutions with fast ROI, to build an as-a-service energy transition.
Developing affordable HVAC systems with battery storage, to be installed with photovoltaics inself-consumption. Their core product is based on a multi-patented architecture, allowing the reusing of bike batteries. 
Licensing agreement with Stelpro (North America), partnership with Engie and Butagaz to develop as-a-service offer, project with La Poste to reuse batteries from 10 000 rental e-bikes | SeriesB into preparation  | Amount to raise: € 30M in equity and non-dilutive

FRANCE – Cleantech/Energy – Tidal stream Energy
Tidal stream energy is a renewable, clean, and predictable source of energy offered by the ocean. With two field-tested tidal stream turbines, including the first French grid-connected device, the company stands out as a pioneer in this innovative field. Deployed on the seabed and totally immersed underwater, tidal turbines are deployed in arrays and produce sustainable electricity. The technology credo is inherited from the Oil&Gas and maritime sector: simplicity and ruggedness shall guarantee reliability of underwater equipment for continuous power production.
Main customers: utility or project developers | TRL: 7-8 | TAM: 160 GW | Next Step: commercialisation of pilot tidal arrays |2 EPC contract in France and 1 overseas under negotiation | Amount to raise: €5m
