Our National Leads for Australia

Good to know:

Meet Vanessa, National Lead of ClimateLaunchpad Australia!

What is your background?

Dr Vanessa is a Research Fellow at Curtin University Sustainability Policy Institute (CUSP), Managing Director of SimplyCarbon, a profit-for-purpose sustainability Edu-Tech start-up and helps to deliver Climate-KiC Australia’s entrepreneurial activities.

Why did you become a Natioanl Lead?

Climate-KIC Australia offers a new way to link businesses, entrepreneurs, research, investors, and government to address the challenges and harness the opportunities of climate change. We are the sister organisation to EIT Climate-KIC

Why do you think this competition is so important?

We see the competition acting as platform for early stage ideas and to build the capability of young entrepreneurs. And acting as potential pipeline of candidates for our Acceleration programs.

How does your organisation support clean tech start-ups?

We are developing a suite of programs that build on the experience of Climate-KIC in Europe that are customised to the Australian market. Through our delivery partners we provide access to mentors, decision makers, investors and research expertise.
