ClimateLaunchpad is offering its annual competition for 2020, which is considered a ticket to global success. As participants submit an idea or innovation with environmental impact and then get help to fast track that idea into a business and bypass all possible pitfalls along the way. And be taught how to get the idea funded and launched. These ideas can be an innovation in renewable energy, a sustainable transition in the food chain, a mind shift in urban mobility or any other way to tackle climate change.
