JCI Malta launches new Start-Up Programme

Posted On May 21, 2021

The Earth’s climate naturally fluctuates throughout the years. However, recently the average temperature has significantly and steadily increased, which may correspond to enormous changes in our environment.

The Seedgreen programme was launched recently, with the goal of finding promising start-up ideas that may reduce the effects of climate change, and help guide these ideas into fruition.  This is a five month programme and is an initiative by the Ministry of the Environment; Junior Chamber International Malta (JCI Malta); Climate Change and Planning; and supported by Malta Enterprise to form part of the national #ClimateOn campaign.

The programme is looking for individuals who want to be involved and help lead Malta to climate neutrality. Individuals will be guided and mentored to achieve their project’s goal. The top three green solutions can earn a cash grant of up to €12,000, to help further the development of their solution.

The programme is divided into two stages, namely the Validator Stage and Accelerator Stage. The first stage involves tutoring, by which participants can improve their proposed green solutions. The six most promising ideas will continue to the Accelerator Stage, where mentors will provide additional support, together with the assistance of JCI Malta and Malta Enterprise. Finally, those who make it to the second stage have the chance of winning three prizes to further support their work.

A number of priority areas have been created, where individuals are encouraged to focus on:

  • Agriculture
  • Buildings
  • Changing Behaviours
  • Energy Efficiency
  • Manufacturing
  • Retail
  • Transportation
  • Waste

One may find further information and apply to participate through the following link: https://www.seedgreen.org/.
