GCAS will bring leaders and changemakers from around the world to San Francisco’s Moscone Center, Sept. 12-14, to “Take Ambition to the Next Level.” The Summit will celebrate the extraordinary achievements of states, regions, cities, companies, investors and citizens with respect to climate action. It will also be a launchpad for deeper worldwide commitments and accelerated action from countries—supported by all sectors of society—that can put the globe on track to prevent dangerous climate change and realize the historic Paris Agreement.Selected startups will receive a dedicated exhibition area in the Innovation Space (Sept. 13-14) and credentials for two members of their team. On the morning of September 14th, Alice has organized an investor walk-through, which will give the selected startups the opportunity to connect with investors and be selected for the grand prize of $5000.
*Selected startups will be responsible for all costs associated with exhibition, including travel, marketing, and logistics.
