The participating startups that continue developing their projects in Cleantech Camp 2021 program completed the last training sessions of this edition between the end of June and the beginning of July. As in the previous training weeks, the entrepreneurs were able to virtually attend different conferences and workshops focused on acquiring knowledge to promote and develop their business ideas.
These last sessions dealt with aspects as the financial concepts that entrepreneurs must master, presented by Nuno Couceiro; the management of operations and the supply chain, during a session led by Carlos Roig or formulas for the protection of ideas, by Óscar Rubio from ZBM Patents & Trademarks, knowledge partner of the program. A couple of days were also held to explain how to raise private and public funds, which included the participation of Pau Barbará and Laura Sisó, from Bridge the Gap, also a knowledge partner of Cleantech Camp. Finally, Sara Barona, who is part of our knowledge partner Osborne Clarke, gave a session focused on the investment processes and the legislative possibilities contemplated in the agreements between shareholders.
On the other hand, the last training week also served for startups to prepare their final pilot proposals. In this sense, this year’s edition has resulted in a total of nine possible pilots developed by startups Amnis Pura, Albedo, Enerpoly, Hacdos, Rayo Bioenergía, Green Prefab, Carbominer, Boxis, and Carbonscope. All these pilots are currently being analyzed and evaluated by our industrial partners to assess which of them are likely to receive investment for their development and production. The choice of the possible pilots to be financed by each partner, as well as the winners of this edition, will be announced on September 16, after the Cleantech Camp 2021 Committee will have previously selected the six finalist projects of this year’s edition.
