Climate Launchpad is the world’s largest green business ideas competition. The competition is a platform for clean-tech talent to help them grow their sustainable idea into global business to combat Climate Change. Climate Launchpad is being introduced in Nepal for the first time in 2018! Team leader of the best three teams from Nepal will win tickets and accommodation to travel to Scotland, UK and compete against teams from 45 other countries in the Grand Final! The top three at the Grand Final will win cash prizes worth Euro 2,500 to 10,000and get access to further investment to launch their business.
Emerging Technologies is excited to be the national partner in Nepal for Climate Launchpad, the biggest green idea competition in the world. Nepal has been found to be one of the most affected and at-risk countries due to climate change. Moreover, almost a fifth of the country has no access to electricity and the per capita electricity consumption is less than 180 kWh per capita. Nonetheless, these challenges also provide many opportunities for growth. There are entrepreneurs in Nepal who are continually innovating and experimenting to find solutions to these challenges. Some are just now beginning to think of innovative ideas that have potential to solve global issues. We look forward to working with such entrepreneurs and helping them take their green idea from a concept to a scalable global business.
