Applications close 18 June, 2020, and we endevour to get back to the sucessful applicants by the first week of July 2020. Note that this year, there will be a pre-course for successful teams to complete prior to their boot camp. This is an online learning module that you may complete at your leisure. A link to that course will be provided to you upon your acceptance into the program.
First thing’s first: we are still here for you. COVID-19 has turned the world upside-down. Our hearts go out to anyone affected by the pandemic. These times are challenging on all levels and demand all of our humanity and resilience. We need our strength and our community ties to support one other.
But one thing has not changed: the challenges of climate change have not gone away.
The most significant change is that the entire 2020 edition of our competition will be remote and executed online.
Going digital was on our agenda anyway. With the continuous expansion across all continents, it was high time to reduce our carbon foot print. That decision was accelerated now. What stays the same is our mission to scout and train the world’s most promising entrepreneurs with viable greentech business ideas.
Learn all you can on how to successfully start your green business. ClimateLaunchpad kicks off with an intensive Boot Camp & follow-up coaching sessions.
Battle your way to success during State pitch nights, National Finals and the Global Grand Final. Convince our jury and you’ll convince any client or investor.
Yep, of course there is prize money for the top three Global Grand Final winners. The real prize? Networking opportunities and a chance to make it to the renowned Climate-KIC Accelerator.
