What can I expect as a result of participating at the 2030 Summit as a cleantech startup?
 

Pilot projects
The  2030 Summit provides an arena for ambitious cleantech startups to meet with established companies to form collaborative partnerships. However, it’s up to you to land an agreement. The partners are open to signing LOIs  with startups that present solutions to their specific climate headaches. An LOI  usually signals the transition from casual discussions to more serious negotiations. Signing an LOI does not mean that a deal is finalized, but it indicates a level of seriousness and intention, and can assist both parties in the collaboration process.

 

Networking 

If your tech solution is outside the scope of our partners’ climate headaches, no worries! Join the party regardless – there will be great networking opportunities. You can expect to meet climate-focused professionals working in corporations, the public sector, and NGOs – all eager to help you accelerate your innovation.
