We just came back from ClimateLaunchpad 2019 Global Grand Final which was held in Amsterdam, Netherlands on November 14-15. And Carbominer got to Top 16 green ideas!
ClimateLaunchpad is one of the world’s largest green business ideas competition. They look for cleantech potentials that address climate change.
How was it?
Among 2,601 applications from 53 countries, there were chosen 150 projects, which proceeded to Semi-Finals. Teams were divided into 8 rooms and made their pitches during the first day of ClimateLaunchpad.
The next day in the morning, we discovered the names of the finalists. And Carbominer was one of the Top 16. In the afternoon finalists made their pitches.
Though we didn’t take first place, it was a nice experience. Besides the fact, that we pitched our idea at the global stage to the world, in these two days we made acquaintances with a bunch of amazing business projects, potential partners and investors.
Under the terms of the of ClimateLaunchpad competition all Top 16 teams will go on to the EIT Climate-KIC Accelerator. This is the EU acceleration programme focused primarily on climate impact and supporting cleantech startups. Looking forward to going there!
