The ClimateLaunchPad competition aims to accelerate innovation that enables a low-carbon future. The competition scouts cleantech talent and helps them grow their sustainable idea into a global business.
By looking for the world's best sustainability ideas, ClimateLaunchPad aims to unlock the world’s cleantech potential and create opportunities for innovators to address climate change. The competition is open to early stage cleantech entrepreneurs, researchers and students with a green business idea. The business idea can be an innovation in renewable energy, a sustainable transition in the food chain, a mind shift in urban mobility or any other way to tackle climate change.
