Applications open for world's largest green business ideas competition

The search is on for budding entrepreneurs with big plans for tackling climate change.

Up for grabs is the chance to turn your innovative green idea into a global business opportunity.

ClimateLaunchpad is an annual competition that’s free to enter and open to all Australians, from students to start-ups. Projects can be at any stage of development.

Got a solution to help with urban mobility? Maybe waste management or energy efficiency is your thing. Perhaps you’ve invented a cool piece of clean-tech. It doesn’t matter—every idea is welcome!

Apply online before 30th May, 2018. Entrants get to attend boot camp sessions and receive mentoring from industry professionals to help transform their idea into a real sustainable business.

The top teams will pitch their ideas to a jury of experts at the state and national finals, and be in with a chance to compete against 35 countries at the global finals in Europe. Winners get prize money and entry into the high-level Climate-KIC Accelerator program.

Locally, ClimateLaunchpad is offered by Climate-KIC Australia, with support from the Victorian Government.
