Have you got an innovative business idea or a fledgling enterprise addressing climate challenges? Then this could be the opportunity of a lifetime for you.
The so-called MED ClimAccelerator programme, which is locally run by MCAST, has officially launched its programme, giving start-ups and changemakers across Malta and Gozo the possibility to receive up to €20,000 in funds, tailored training and expert coaching.
The programme falls under the EIT Climate-KIC, aimed at boosting innovation in relation to climate change solutions by supporting and funding local start-ups. But the programme actually supports the first three stages of start-up development and is not only limited to early-stage start-ups or scale-ups.
Applications for funding opened on Monday 29 March and will be open for four weeks, closing on Monday 26 April. Anyone with an innovative business idea or fledgeling enterprise addressing climate challenges is invited to apply.
MED ClimAccelerator is the only national accelerator programme offering services and expertise in sustainability and innovation to directly address climate change. As part of a Mediterranean cleantech consortium, Malta is boosting its innovation potential and taking tangible steps towards addressing complex climate challenges.
MCAST is working with Tech.mt, Business Angels Malta and the Ministry for Environment, Climate Change and Planning to identify the most crucial climate challenges to address nationally and provide additional mentoring and funding to selected start-ups.
