15 startups from Spain, Portugal, France, Sweden, Italy, Finland, and Ukraine will follow on Cleantech Camp in 2021
More than 90 projects from all over Europe aspired to participate in this year’s edition
Our jury has already selected 15 projects that will take part in the training program of this year’s edition. The choice was made based on more than 90 business ideas received from different European countries. This figure represents a new record in terms of the number of projects presented since the program was launched in its first edition, which shows its quick consolidation and the interest it generates among emerging companies that wish to undertake in the field of clean energy.
It is worth highlighting the 15 projects selected and their varied origin. Six of them have been conceived in Spain, two in Portugal, France, and Sweden, while the remaining three are driven by entrepreneurs from Italy, Finland, and Ukraine. The startups that will participate in Cleantech Camp 2021 suggest proposals for IoT & AI energy, sustainable mobility or gas, hydrogen, or carbon solutions.
The program will consist of distance training sessions given by experts, which combine workshops that address aspects such as raising investment, the implementation of a marketing plan, or the legal frameworks. In addition, the 15 selected projects must present, during the first two weeks of the program, to Enagás Emprende, CRH, and PRIO, an outline for the development of a pilot, which they will work together with the companies during the coming months, until reaching a final design, capable of responding the challenges suggested.
Participants will opt to win 20,000 euros with the first award, 5,000 euros with the second prize and the third-best project will be recognized, in addition to the possible financing of the pilots, with contributions that can reach 120,000 euros. The winners will be announced on September 16, during an event that, if the health authorities allow it, will take place in person at the Barcelona Activa facilities.
