Using the power of crowdsourcing, a legacy business model for Ideanco since 1999, the ideanco Lab team has worked extensively with innovators coming from all across the globe to find a solution with a global impact on the key challenges we are facing on our amazing planet Earth.
Chosen cohorts of innovators to tackle the set challenges virtually for a full 72-hours in each city, before pitching their ideas in front of relevant and well-respected judges coming from the climate change sector. These ideas can develop into tangible sustainable solutions, projects and potential startups that address climate challenges in all cities across the globe.
