The Cleantech Open runs the world's largest clean technology business competition and we're looking for the best clean technology ideas from around the world.


Just for telling us your idea, you could win a prize package of services to help you start a business to grow your idea! Start HERE.

  1. Tell us which country you are from.
  2. Answer the five questions we ask that help you build your "success paragraph."
  3. If your idea beats out the competition in your National Competition, you get to represent your country as a Global Ideas finalist at the annual Cleantech Open Global Forum in November.

There, if you are a finalist from your country, your idea will be presented in a three-minute pitch in front of a crowd of 1,000 investors, entrepreneurs, sponsoring companies, corporations, members of academia, press, and others interested in hearing your ideas and getting involved.

A judging panel of cleantech experts, investors and entrepreneurs will select the winning team. You could win marketing support, legal advising, conferencing services and more to help launch your business!
