The FinLab is a keen supporter of sustainability and has launched The Greentech Accelerator to grow and nurture more greentech solutions for industry partnerships and adoption.
The concept of sustainability has been growing in importance for businesses. A business that is sustainable is one that functions in the best interest of the environment, promoting awareness amongst both the local and global partners with the practice of responsible production. According to the Paris Climate Accord, businesses can impact up to 60% of emission cuts by 2030, and now is the time for business owners to take part in the sustainable movement to promote a more liveable planet for all.
The Greentech Accelerator by UOB’s The FinLab is a 3-months global programme, focusing on solutions with a Technology Readiness Level of 6 and above (i.e. ready prototype demonstration) and in areas such as energy efficiency, zero-waste supply chain, carbon management and reporting. 10 selected greentechs will be nurtured to tackle actual sustainability challenges from corporates and SMEs for potential partnerships and pilots with total funding of up to USD108,500.
What Do You Need To Participate?
Greentechs should have a Technology Readiness Level (TRL) of 6 and above, meaning a ready prototype demonstration. Companies would also be assessed for their scalability, traction, and readiness for deployment. 10 selected greentechs will join the programme from August to early November 2022.
How Will You Benefit From The Programme?
1) Connect with Businesses with Actual Challenge Statements;
2) Pilots and Commercially Deploy Solutions;
3) Learning and Development with Mentors and Domain Experts
Join us and embark on building a sustainable ecosystem for future generations and the planet. Applications close on Tuesday, 12 July 2022.
Until next time,
