Do you have a bright idea or innovative business that improves access to clean energy? Then, you have the opportunity to participate in the Clean Energy Innovation Challenge and win $10,000 in investment!
The Clean Energy Innovation Challenge is an open innovation challenge to find and support early-stage sustainable energy innovators to get their ideas (working prototypes) off the ground as sustainable businesses and on track for growth.
The top 4 ideas will receive a pre-seed investment of $10,000 from All On and will be supported to launch & grow through the CcHUB Incubation Programme. The remaining 6 shortlisted ideas will also have the opportunity for incubation with CcHUB, enabling them access to product development, distribution and business modelling support to scale and grow their idea.
