East Ventures and Temasek Foundation have introduced the Climate Impact Innovations Challenge (CIIC) in Indonesia.
The competition gives startups and business owners a stage on which to present their environmentally friendly approaches to problems and efforts to counteract the consequences of climate change.
Teams that compete can receive a total prize pot of 10 billion rupiahs (about $650,000 USD) to test their ideas across the nation.
The forthcoming contest will concentrate on four primary ecological issues: marine resources, food and agriculture, mobility, and renewable energy.
Up to May 26th, there are still accepting applications for the CIIC. Teams that have “built the pilot to produce a minimal viable product with the purpose for commercialization” are qualified to participate in the competition.
By June, the finalists will be revealed, and the grand finale is scheduled for September.
A white paper on how Indonesia’s healthcare system may be enhanced through genomics was just published by East Ventures.
