Our Team for Australia
Good to know:
In Australia we are running Boot Camps in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth.
All teams will compete at Pitch Panels within their city and the top-2 in each city will pitch again at the Australian National Pitch Finals, which will be held in Melbourne or Sydney. Teams will pitch to industry renowned judges and the top three teams will represent Australia at the international Global Finals.
Climate-KIC Australia will provide travel scholarships for those selected to attend the National Finals and Global Finals.
