What you can get?
Through providing training workshops and a platform where they can seek advice and guidance from relevant industry experts, CARS hopes to inspire and assist selected participants in honing their entrepreneurial skills and developing their creative capacity on combating climate change.
With the platform established, cross-sectoral resources and networking opportunity will also be matched to these climate shapers, in order to actualize their climate change solutions and expand their horizon in the industry of sustainable development.
CARS will award HKD$120,000-HKD$180,000 per cohort to selected projects for developing and scaling up the prototype. Various events will also be arranged for selected participants to pitch and showcase their innovative climate actions to potential investors and related stakeholders.
