Climatelaunchpad's Green Business Ideas Competition

The network of ClimateLaunchpad partners is a powerful one. They are dedicated to encourage innovation in their countries and work with a range of local partners including businesses, investors, chambers of commerce, and local government. They are optimistic and believe they can bring about change.

Does this sound like something you’d like to be a part of? There are opportunities to join the team at ClimateLaunchpad. We operate on a global scale. So no matter where you’re located, you can apply to be a new partner.

To give you a sense of what you need to organise ClimateLaunchpad in your country, here is a quick checklist:

  1. A great network of clean tech entrepreneurs in your country
  2. An organisation that can enter into a legal contract with us
  3. Time and energy

ClimateLaunchpad helps you get your idea battle-proof. There are three rounds to the competition:

Step 1: Boot Camp

ClimateLaunchpad kicks off with a 2-day Boot Camp in your own country. Our trainers will teach you all you need to know about jump-starting your business.

Step 2: Intensive coaching and National Finals (and if applicable Regional Finals)

The Boot Camp is followed by a period of intensive coaching. You’ll perfect your pitch, value proposition and business model. After that, you’re ready to rock your National Final where you’ll pitch in front of the National Jury. If applicable, the top teams may go on to Regional Finals*. Winning teams of National and/or Regional Finals get to compete in the Global Grand Final.

Step 3: Global Grand Final
There is prize money to be won. The overall winner of the Global Grand Final receives € 10,000, the runner up gets € 5,000 and the idea that comes in third place wins € 2,500. The top 16 teams selected by the jury to perform in the Final Round of the Global Grand Fina, will automatically get direct access to the Climate-KIC ClimateLaunchpad Accelerator, the renowned business school where great ideas grow into great businesses.
