This year was the first time ClimateLaunchpad started the search for cleantech heroes in Lithuania. On the 29-30th of May 12 teams with different ideas on how to tackle climate change were gathered to gain some knowledge about business making. In the 2-day intensive Boot Camp realization models of ideas were questioned, analyzed and outlined into the final pitches. Here you can find a list of teams and short descriptions of their ideas:
Aimo – an app that offers a simple and fast way of finding passengers for empty seats in your car or finding someone who has those emty seats for you.
