ClimateLaunchPad (CLP) is the world’s largest green business idea competition whose mission is to unlock the world’s clean technology potential that addresses climate change. Currently, in its 7th edition, the competition is a global community of climate tech innovators determined to address the negative impacts of climate change through entrepreneurship. Since 2016, KCL has been the Kenya and Africa organizer of the competition for the last 4 editions.
The CLP 2020 competition edition was a fully virtual event. 10 African teams participated in the Grand Global Finals that were held from 30th September to 2nd October 2020. Kenya was represented by Pine Kazi and EcoBora. Five Kenyan teams participated in a post-competition pilot whose overall objective was to gather information and learn from partners on the best approaches to increase impact for CLP locally.
The specific objective of the program was to explore the best possible practices in implementing a post-CLP support program through supporting the CLP applicants to ensure they are eligible for local incubator and accelerator programs.
