Do you have a clean-tech business idea that needs wings?
Join the world’s largest green business ideas competition across 35 countries. We train you. You compete nationally. Together with our industry experts we transform your idea into a sustainable business. Whether your idea is still on the back of a napkin or fully fledged, you are most welcome to join.
Climate-KIC Australia facilitates the annual competition here in Australia. Together we fast track sustainability ideas, help them grow into businesses and get successfully funded.
Starting with a national call, Climate-KIC Australia, searches the country for the most promising cleantech ideas and solutions.
The qualifying teams attend two-day Boot Camp programs where they receive hands-on training to develop their ideas into impactful businesses, followed by meetings with their team mentors.
Next there are local and national competitions where entrepreneurs battle to convince the jury their business idea is the best.
The 3 national winner teams attend the Global ClimateLaunchpad Finals in Europe with the chance to win a ticket to the high level EIT Climate-KIC Accelerator program and prize money.
The competition is open to any Australian resident – being a start-up, SME, researcher, student, public organisation, consultant or anyone else with an innovative green idea, whether it’s fully fledged or sketched on the back of a coaster.
