About the Nordic Cleantech Open

The Nordic Cleantech Open is a start-up competition for cleantech entrepreneurs originating from the Nordic and Baltic countries. The purpose is to put a global spotlight on the increasing flow of new innovative cleantech companies coming out the gate from the Nordic and Baltic innovation systems, to raise the interest from international investors and industrials, to help foster a new generation of cleantech teams, to attract new entrepreneurs to choose the cleantech sector and to accelerate Nordic cleantech companies into the global market.

Anyone looking to turn their cleantech idea into a successful business can apply. You must own the rights to the idea with which you are entering the competition. To be eligible, your entity must have received less than 1,000,000 EUR in external private financing. Grant funding and bank loans not included.
