Hack for Climate Finance, Bangkok
Join our Scale-Up Lab to hack the next generation of climate finance solutions!
The Scale-Up Lab is a public showcase of innovative hacks addressing major financing challenges faced by climate-smart small and growing enterprises.

Join us on 30th June 2021 at 3:00-5:00 pm (BKK/GMT+7) for a showcase to a larger public audience.
The Hack for Climate Finance – a collaborative partnership between the SEED Practitioner Labs Climate Finance, British Embassy Bangkok, SWITCH SCP Facility, Go4SDGs and PAGE – offered teams the opportunity to develop climate finance solutions in the fields of conservation, clean energy, waste management, and sustainable agriculture.
The Scale-Up Lab is a virtual pitching session with live feedback from the audience and climate finance, waste management, agro-forestry, SME development, and sustainability experts. Solution developers have the opportunity to further refine their hacks based on the expert panel and audience feedback. The lab will also set a stage for bilateral meetings on solution roll-out.
