WOMEN IN CLIMATE ENTREPRENEURSHIP (WICE)
Entrepreneurship and innovation are essential in the fight against climate change. At Climate Collective Foundation, we strongly believe that one of the ways to achieve a sustainable world is through challenging the current business models and rapidly commercialising disruptive innovation. However, a truly sustainable world has to be diverse and inclusive.
Women are more affected by climate change and yet climate tech sector is currently a male dominated field. Climate Collective Foundation’s flagship initiative, Women in Climate Entrepreneurship addresses the existing gaps for the women-led startups and aims to empower women to unleash their innovative potential.

A kick-off bootcamp, weekly calls with experts, camaraderie of like-minded professionals - the learnings were manifold during this beautiful 3-month journey with Climate Collective.
This was a really good platform. The sessions developed into some great networking as well and were useful to tackle the issues such as scaling up, funding etc. which I particularly enjoyed.
The one-on-one sessions mentoring sessions gave me the confidence to reach out to like minded people for expansion
