About This Project

“Fixing climate change, one start up at a time”

Already for some years Irish Aid is the strategic partner to the global green business idea competition ClimateLaunchpad enabling them to run additional competitions in (South) Africa, Vietnam and since 2021 also including Colombia. Next to being a partner to the #CLP21 competition Irish Aid enables us to host the regional LATAC final, train 2 more local trainers, include a climate impact forecast workshop and organize a post-Global Grand Final light-touch follow-up Accelerator for the most promising cleantech start ups. Truly genuine support to enable us to grow our guidance and impact to achieve our mission to fix climate change, one start up at a time.
