Prizes in the National and Regional Finals differ per country and region. Of course there will also be prizes (cash or in kind) for the Global Grand Final winners. The overall winner of the Global Grand Final receives € 10,000, the runner up gets € 5,000 and the idea that comes in third place wins € 2,500.
The top 16 teams selected by the jury in the semi-finals to perform in the Final Round of the Global Grand Final, will automatically get direct access to the ClimateLaunchpad Accelerator.
On top of that, the 7 Theme winners of the semi-finals (Top 1 of each theme) will win access to the Climate Marketplace Dealstream. We are working together with Climate Marketplace to scale investment going to climate positive start-ups. Climate Marketplace is the most comprehensive overview of investment opportunities into early-stage climate positive start-ups. The dealflow stems from sustainability accelerator programmes all over the world. During the DealStream they get to pitch their idea in front of investment professionals, business angels, accredited investors and certified high net worth individuals or companies. So that is a very serious opportunity for serious funding!
The big prize? A bunch of new acquired skills & knowledge and networking opportunities to get your business thriving. And of course infinite glory.
All prizewinners are responsible for any taxes, wire transfer costs and other possible costs related to receiving the prize.
