Aurora Consulting founder Isabella shares her experience of taking part in ClimateLaunchpad 2016:


ClimateLaunchpad is the world’s largest cleantech ideas competition.

To enter the competition, budding inventors and entrepreneurs simply have to submit an idea or innovation that could have a positive environmental impact.

Those selected to join ClimateLaunchpad, which is running in more than 30 countries around the world as well as Scotland, will get dedicated support to fast track their idea into a business and bypass pitfalls along the way. They’ll also learn how to get their idea funded and launched.

After taking part in a Boot Camp and coaching sessions to develop their idea into a rock-solid plan, participants will get the chance to pitch this idea during the UK Final later this year. The top three winners of each national competition will go on to compete in the worldwide Grand Final in Cyprus in October 2017.
