Climate Launchpad Startup Competition (5 ECTS)

ClimateLaunchpad is the world’s largest green business ideas competition. The goal is to unlock the world’s cleantech potential that addresses climate change and create a stage for those ideas.

We’re here to get you started, so you can massively contribute to tackling climate change.

Your idea can be any idea that helps fix climate.  It’s your chance to develop your idea, get business coaching and pitch training.

National competition includes online course and boot camp in June, and coaching and the national finals in August. 3AMK students will receive ECTS points from participating national competition.

Winner will head towards regional finals (early September) and finally towards the Global Grand Final in October, where the teams pitch their ideas to investors and entrepreneurs. Due to the current virus situation, the competition will be organised completely online this year.
