After a pitch training session, on 1st November the delegates had the opportunity to perform a pitch about the sustainable competitive advantages of their innovative cleantech solutions to a jury of experts selected by UNIDO.

At IVECF, on 2nd and 3rd November, all Winners took part in the session “Connecting the dots to empower cleantech innovations & climate solutions”. Notably, the Winner from Kenya Norah Magero, Co-Founder & CEO of Drop Access, also joined as panelist the sessions “Showcase of thematic solutions by women changemakers” and “Pathways to prosperity and climate neutrality”.

This initiative was organized in the framework of the project “Fostering International Partnerships between companies and/or institutions operating in the Energy and Environment sectors”, funded by the Italian Ministry of Environment and Energy Security (MASE) and implemented by UNIDO ITPO Italy.
