Pak Green Innovation Challenge
Fighting Climate Change with Pakistani Christian Entrepreneurs
Pakistan has been ranked in the Top 10 countries of the world to be most affected by Climate Change. While the government leads and regulates the environmental sustainability agenda of the country, the responsibility for the conservation of the environment and its resources rests with all stakeholders, including the public and private sector, as well as individuals.
Do you have an idea or running solution that you believe can positively impact the environment?
Join us in the fight to stop climate change. Apply to enter the Pak Green Innovation challenge, where you’ll get a chance to participate in a founder bootcamp, perfect your pitch, and showcase your ideas before expert judges for the change to win cash prizes.
The National Incubation Center conducts regular Hackathons and Innovation Challenges to encourage the interflow of ideas and solutions for some of the most pressing problems we face.
Given the current state of the environment, it is our honor to have partnered with Pak Mission Society to find solutions for problems pertaining to climate change.
Let's Teamup to build a green, all-inclusive future.
