What do previous participants have to say about ClimateLaunchpad?
"ClimateLaunchpad was truly our launchpad to the world of cleantech. We met many other great startups throughout the program and constantly improved our idea and pitch during the well-structured program,” says Merilyn Kesküla from Ari Care, participant of ClimateLaunchpad 2022.
"Our expectations [of the Boot Camp] were definitely fulfilled because we met just the right people. It's not only the trainers, who give a lot of good input, but it's also the other participants," says Johannes Tamegger from Organipakk, participant of ClimateLaunchpad 2022.
"It was so cool to see other really meaningful and serious startups who care about nature and want to not only find a solution to waste but reevaluate waste," says Liis Tiisvelt from Low imPACK, participant of ClimateLaunchpad 2022.
