The world's biggest cleantech and green business ideas competition

ClimateLaunchpad was a complete gamechanger for us. We went from having what we thought was a pretty solid idea, to a fully-fledged plan for taking our product to market, which has enabled us to commence our seed funding round, with a really promising outlook.

COVID-19 Update

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.
