ClimateLaunchpad is the world’s largest and best-known competition for green business ideas, aiming to find new and sustainable solutions to climate change. Haaga-Helia University of Applied Sciences is coordinating this year's competition, which is organised in cooperation with Laurea and Metropolia Universities of Applied Sciences (3AMK).
The themes of this year’s competition are urban solutions, the circular economy, sustainable mobility, clean energy, food systems, and adaptation and resilience.
Participation in the competition does not require a ready-made business model, your idea can still be on the back of a napkin or it can be already further-developed – as long as it helps to fix the climate! However, there is one condition: your business idea must have less than EUR 200,000 in funding.
The idea will be developed together with the help of our professional coaches as the competition progresses. The 3-step-competition starts with an intensive yet short online course, continues with a Boot Camp and ends with National Finals. On top of the great experience, 3AMK students will get 5 ECTS points!
The winning team will continue their journey to Regional Finals, then possible to Global Finals in October where the best teams will win access to the EIT Climate-KIC Accelerator, gain investor relations, earn fame and glory and of course – money.
Find out more and enroll for the competition by June 6.
