Dear Cleantech Enthusiasts,
We are pleased to invite you to submit your ideas to the Global Clean Tech Open IDEAS Competition, taking place as part of the Global Entrepreneurship Week (www.gew.org.il), an initiative taking place in over 75 countries and engaging more than 3 million participants, between November 15 and 22, 2009.
The Clean Tech Open is the world's largest clean technology business competition. In 2009 we're launching the first Global Clean Tech Open IDEAS Competition, a global competition for exciting new clean technologies and ideas. We're looking for the best clean tech ideas from around the world - anything from revolutionary ways to generate clean energy to better water filtration to ideas about how governmental policies around climate change can foster new businesses in one of the competition categories. If you are an entrepreneur with a great green idea, this is your chance to share it with the world!
To enter the competition, all you need to do is tell us briefly about your idea. National winners will go on to have their IDEA judged at the annual Clean Tech Open Awards Gala in San Francisco, California on 17 November. To be eligible for the Global Cleantech Open's Ideas Competition, you must have obtained less than $500,000 (USD) in funding to date.
Last day to submit your idea/team is Monday 13:00pm, November 9th.
