The Global CleanTech Innovation Programme (GCIP), currently running in 8 countries, including Pakistan, is a three year programme that aims at developing a sustainable entrepreneurship ecosystem, while supporting clean technology innovations in SMEs and startup entrepreneurs to maximize their opportunities to achieve sustainable commercial success. The GCIP for SMEs in Pakistan is funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and is implemented by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) with the support of local and international partners. The CleanTech Open, the biggest CleanTech accelerator in the United States of America, is the programme's global partner. The programme will utilize the CleanTech Open's proven model to support CleanTech startups and SMEs for the implementation of the acceleration programme in Pakistan.
The World largest clean technology competition is looking to help Pakistani entrepreneurs (SMEs and Startups) with the best ideas that deal with today's most imperative energy, environmental and economic challenges. The Cleantech Program focuses on fostering emerging and commercially viable clean technology startups to fuel green industrial growth in the country, while small and medium-sized enterprises are provided with training, mentoring, and access to potential investors.
