Cleantech Innovation Programme
The GEF (Global Environment Facility), UNIDO (the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation) and TIA (the Technology Innovation Agency) in South Africa are implementing the GCIP (Global Cleantech Innovation Programme) for SMEs to promote clean technology innovation and supporting SMEs and start-ups working on solutions related to energy efficiency, green buildings, renewable energy, waste beneficiation and water efficiency. The programme combines a competition and a business accelerator to offer participants progressing through the programme extensive mentoring, training, access to investors and opportunities to showcase their innovations to the media and the public. Participants stand a chance to win a cash award and national business support awards, in addition to a trip to Silicon Valley, CA, to participate in the Cleantech Open Global Forum.
The Global Cleantech Innovation Programme for SMEs and start-ups is an entrepreneurship accelerator programme which equips Cleantech Innovators with the skills and tools required to succeed as Cleantech Entrepreneurs.
