What is the ClimateLaunchpad?
ClimateLaunchpad is the world’s largest green business ideas competition.
Our mission is to unlock the world’s cleantech potential that addresses climate change. The competition nourishes ideas with sustainability impact, and provides a stage for them.
Fixing climate change – one startup at a time.
In 2022 [sic!] – students‘ innovation centre is organising the Climate Launchpad in Austria for the 7th time.
