ClimateLaunchpad Americas Regional Final 2020

Join us in the region’s largest online green business idea competition! 
On September 17th and 18th, Climatable is proud to present the ClimateLaunchpad Americas Regional Final. Be part of this growing community of actors fighting climate change one start-up at a time! 
15 teams from Colombia, Canada, Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil and all over the Caribbean have fought hard in their own national competitions and are now ready to step on the international stage. Come and be inspired by the next generation of green business ideas presenting in front of a panel of experts and an audience of entrepreneurs and innovators.
Be part of thought-provoking discussions! 
In addition to the pitch competition, we have assembled panels with topics on entrepreneurial experiences and strategies for cleantech startups amidst a pandemic. First, we have ClimateLaunchpad alumni to describe how this event launched them into the exciting world of entrepreneurship and innovation. Next, a panel of experts of the cleantech community give their insight and tips on open innovation (how to engage larger corporations to support startups).

Keynote speakers sharing their valuable insight!
We are proud to welcome two leaders of the cleantech community willing to give some inspiring stories to the participants: Tom Rand author and managing partner at ArcTern Ventures and Frans Nauta the founder of the ClimateLaunchpad initiative.
