Climate Launchpad Update (Sorry)

Back in September we announced that we’d been selected to appear in the Climate Launchpad Finals, more information here, sadly we didn’t win the UK final, coming 4th overall.

We were very clear on our reasons to attend, as the mentoring and focus on pitching for investment funding would help the NDCA in determining our approach to this area.

So, since the competition ended we’ve been trying out some new ideas and honing our pitch decks ready for some serious action over the coming months.

We cant divulge (at present) what we’re up to but you will see more activity from us in the next 6 months.
