You will be knowing that EAI had launched an incubation division for cleantech startups, Cleancubator, a few months back.

I’m pleased to let you know that Cleancubator is part of an exciting cleantech event, organized by TiE Chennai Cleantech SIG, and also partnered by the Founder Institute.

The first ever nationwide cleantech contest, the India Cleantech Challenge 2016, will be taking place in Chennai on April 21.

Cleantech is perhaps the largest social and entrepreneurial movement happening worldwide, especially after the COp 21 summit. Estimates suggest that over $15 TRILLION will be invested globally in this sector over the next 25 years.

Governments, powerful corporates and influential individuals such as Bill Gates are pouring in their time, efforts and money into this segment, as this could literally be the Do or Die sector for the future of the earth!

As a result, a large number of interesting and attractive business opportunities will be opening up in this sector. At the same time, the sector faces crucial challenges too.

If you are interested in knowing about what’s happening in cleantech, both in India and worldwide, the emerging trends and business opportunities and meet exciting entrepreneurs making waves in this sector, you should be at the India Cleantech Challenge at Chennai on Apr 21.
