Successful applicants will be promoted via Showcase platform to Greenbackers exclusive network of over 3000 Cleantech investors as well as to the global community of participants in the COP26 conference.

This program will culminate in a SuperPitch event this November in Glasgow during the COP26 summit which can be attended in person or virtually by webinar  – awards will be given in various categories.

How the program works

The 26 selected ventures will be featured on Greenbackers’ online investment platform, the Greenbackers Showcase, where funders can view all the opportunities and engage with ventures directly. 

Our Showcase platform puts these ventures into a “shop window” for review and determination of their suitability for investment.  Greenbackers then proactively co-ordinates communications, discussions and due diligence between the ventures and investors who visit their profiles.
