The programme

 

Once you’re accepted into the competition, the games begin:

Step 1: Boot Camp
ClimateLaunchpad kicks off with a 2-day Boot Camp in your own country. Our trainers will teach you all you need to know about jumpstarting your business.

 
Step 2: Intensive coaching and National Finals

 The Boot Camp is followed by with a period of intensive coaching. You’ll perfect your pitch, value proposition and business model. We’ll make sure you are ready to rock the National Final where you get to pitch in front of your National Jury. The Top-3 of each country enters the European Final on the 7th and 8th of October in Tallin, Estonia.

 
Step 3: European Final in Estonia on the 7th and 8th of October

 The Top-3 of all National Finals get a chance to pitch their idea in front of the review board of
Climate-KIC Accelerator. Impress them and gain access to Climate-KIC Accelerator, the 18-month real life business school where great ideas grow into great businesses.
 
The European Top-10, selected in the Grande Finale, will get direct access into Climate-KIC Accelerator without having to pitch to a review board.
