PlanX, one of Pakistan’s largest technology accelerators, has entered into an exclusive partnership with NewEnergy Global Startup Fest to share their knowledge and projects on clean technology and energy efficiency.
The NewEnergy Global Startup Fest is an international contest that brings together the biggest startups, investors and experts in clean technology and renewable energy from all around the world. The contest is organized with the support of the Ministry of Energy of the Republic of Kazakhstan and will be held in Astana on October 27, 2016.
The aim of the event is to share innovative ideas in the clean technology field among companies, investment funds, experts and professionals, and develop an overall ecosystem.
Hafsa Shorish, Director of MIT Enterprise Forum Pakistan, and PlanX said, “Energy is one of the pressing problems in our country and it needed attention from the local entrepreneurs.” She further added that Plan X wishes to support initiatives that bring us towards a greener and cleaner world.
The 100 best startup teams in the world will get an all-expenses paid trip to Astana to display their projects during the NewEnergy global startup fest. The teams will get an opportunity to present the latest global trends in the field of alternative and renewable energy sources, climate and ecology, smart cities and sustainable infrastructure, rational and efficient use of water resources, new production technologies and methods.
A team of expert judges will then chose the top 30 teams who will present their projects on the fest’s stage and compete for the main prize, global exposure and attention of investors. The best teams will also get a chance to attend and present their startups at the Astana EXPO held in 2017.
Aside from the opportunity to win the main prize, startups will be able to experience the city of Astana, meet with relevant stakeholders and learn from people in their industry.
PlanX is inviting all relevant Pakistani startups to apply and become a part of this experience. The deadline to apply is October 1, 2016.
