Why did you become a country lead / why does your organisation want to arrange ClimateLaunchpad in your country?

Climate Change is one of the most critical issues of our generation that needs urgent solutions that are innovative and scalable.

Why do you think this competition is important?

The competition is a great platform that can source entrepreneurs who are solving problems across the length and breadth of our country. Its important to support entrepreneurs who are at the early stages of developing their solution. And the platform can bring access to essential resources that an early stage entrepreneur needs.
