About the CleanTech Challenge:

The CleanTech Challenge is a global business plan competition set up in 2009 by joint hosts University College London and London Business School. It allows students to collaborate and develop novel, marketable business ideas in any field of clean technologies. The Challenge starts with a simple business idea submission and culminates with a 2-day “bootcamp” where finalists are challenged and mentored to help them pitch to investors. It is a unique platform that allows students to bring innovative clean technology ideas from concept to execution. It isn’t just new renewable energy tech either; it includes any ideas that reduce:

  • CO2 emissions
  • Air, water or food pollution
  • Destruction or consumption of natural resources
  • Energy consumption

In 2013, over 200 business ideas were submitted by graduate-level business and engineering students in 26 countries! The CleanTech Challenge provides students with ample networking opportunities with the global cleantech community and a cash prize of £10,000!
