Global Grand Final 2020

Be part of the green wave

September 30 & October 1-2

It's a wrap and it was a blast! Thank you all for joining the green wave.

The fully virtual global green business event of the year

ClimateLaunchpad is the global green business ideas competition. Our mission is to unlock the world’s cleantech potential that addresses climate change. The competition creates a stage for those ideas and each year our Global Grand Final presents the world’s crème de la crème of green start-ups. This year we hosted the event online: accessible to all and unconstrained by time, space, travel or CO2. 

Step into the future where waste diapers turn into energy, big data eliminates crop failure, and glue is made from algae instead of oil. For starters.

Teams trained, launched, and competed and here are our 2020 winners.  Or catch the vibe again by watching the Global Grand Final 2020 after movie or other previous editions.
