Climatable is the Canadian national partner of the European Union’s Knowledge and Innovation Community (KIC). We will be focusing to bring the KIC’s ClimateLaunchpad (CLP) competition to Québec. ClimateLaunchpad is a Green Business Idea Competition with economic, social and climate goals on a global scale. The CLP is the world’s largest cleantech business idea competition focussed on tackling Climate Change by supporting early-stage sustainable innovation ideas.

Our mission is to support entrepreneurs, and help them develop their idea into great businesses. To do so, we need to find the best entrepreneurs with sustainable business ideas. Our goal is to identify and connect entrepreneurs to relevant academics and industry professionals, find new partners, potential sponsors, and early-stage investors. By combining our efforts, we aim to have a greater impact and reach a bigger audience.

ClimateLaunchpad creates the stage for promising incremental, and disruptive business ideas, and help them fast track their time to market by doing so. The competition is managed, organized, and supported by Climate-KIC, the European Union’s (EU) main climate innovation initiative, organizing the competition in close cooperation with its national partners, such as Climatable, around the Globe.
