THE LAB: DEMO DAY 2020
Global Innovation Lab for Climate Finance (“the Lab”), for which CPI is the Secretariat, is hosting a Demo Day on Thursday 22 October.
The Lab’s Demo Day will introduce this year’s instruments to potential investors, funders, and implementation partners.
Demo Day will be a fast-paced, 75 minute program, during which Lab entrepreneurs will make a short presentation and take questions from the audience.
About the investment opportunities
The Lab’s class of 2020 targets four main areas: nature-based solutions, sustainable agriculture, sustainable cities, and sustainable energy access. This Lab cohort also includes instruments with a regional focus on Brazil, India, and Southern Africa.
Each of this year’s eight instruments underwent a competitive application process, followed by seven months of rigorous analysis and modeling to maximize the potential for success. Important to the COVID-19 outbreak, each instrument also incorporates elements that help overcome the pandemic’s economic distress for the most vulnerable, while also building long-term resilience.
The 41 businesses that have gone through the Lab’s previous cycles have mobilized over USD 2 billion in climate investment since 2015.
