Sharpen your mind

Just a quick note to let you know we’ve finalized the program for our Grand Final in October in Cyprus and that tickets are going fast: make sure to secure yours. 

How about the President of Cyprus joining us for the awards ceremony, and the CEO of Climate-KIC, Kirsten Dunlop, as the chair of the Grand Final jury?
We also bring you some of the most dynamic minds on greentech and entrepreneurship to deliver rabble-rousing keynotes that will sharpen your mind with their take on the future of green entrepreneurship:

  • Jan van der Tempel | Founder of Ampelmann, founder of Delft Offshore Turbine, green investor. Looking to build a global green company? Jan has done it, and is currently working on his second global company.
  • Joel Moxley | Founder of Foro Energy, founder of Rho AI, green investor. Curious about cleantech in the USA? Joel knows all about it.
  • Eugene Kandel | CEO of the Start-Up Nation Central, and Professor at Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Wanna learn from Israel’s startup miracle? Come listen…
  • Alejandro Lozano | Hacking the airlines loyalty programs, Alejandro is traveling the planet for free. Resourcefulness at its greatest.

For more on these keynotes, the amazing workshops and the more than 100 start-ups coming to Cyprus, go to our website.

The art of pitching
It’s not just us prepping for Cyprus. As we speak, the 105 teams who made it to the Grand Final are working their behinds off to be able to dazzle our judges. To help them shine on stage I created a short post (with 2 free videos included) with 7 easy steps to the perfect pitch. You’ll find it here.

To all finalists: may the odds be ever in your favor.

Have a great day, see you in Cyprus,
Frans Nauta
