Our Team for Colombia

In 2019, Cleantech HUB launched the first ClimateLaunchpad competition in Colombia. Building on the success of the program, we’ve continued to expand the sustainable innovation ecosystem in the country.

In 2019-20, we received over 300 early-stage green business ideas, of which we supported more than 40 startups to transform their green business idea into a clear business pitch.

In 2021, we’re excited to commence with the third ClimateLaunchpad and welcome the winners of Cali, Barranquilla and Bogotá Climathon in 2020.
