Description

We are delighted to announce Startup Disrupt new Sustainability Award event!

Call for applications for the green tech competition of the British Embassy in Prague, open to ambitious companies delivering:

·       clean tech

·       resource efficiency

·       energy storage

·       low carbon technologies, systems and services

·       related technologies from the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

The pitching will take place on 9 November 2021 at the British Embassy Prague.

The move to cleaner economic growth – through low carbon technologies and the efficient use of resources – is one of the greatest industrial opportunities of our time and the UK is positioned as a leading destination for innovation, testing and adoption. In November 2021, the UK will host COP26 to drive global ambition on climate change to deliver on the Paris Agreement.

The British Embassy in Prague, in cooperation with Startup Disrupt, is organising a startup competition focused on finding the most innovative green technology and sustainable solutions in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, with which companies would like to expand to the United Kingdom. The company’s readiness and suitability to set up in the UK will be assessed, too. The eight best applicants will be selected for a pitching competition, where a jury panel of experts will choose the winner. The best pitching businesses will receive a 3-day tailored trip to the UK, where within a green ecosystem tour in London they will meet with key stakeholders in sustainability.

The competition is open to any Czech or Slovak company with an innovative green technology or sustainable solution and interest in expanding to the United Kingdom. Companies of all sizes may apply; the competition is particularly relevant to startup and scale-up companies or SME businesses. Interested startups should already have a ready product.

Deadline for Applications: 29.10. 2021
