Alone we can go quickly, but together we can go far.
— African Proverb

Greenpreneurs grew out of the collective goal of three organizations: Global Green Growth Institute, Student Energy, and Youth Climate Lab, who wanted to support young people develop a sustainable idea or solution that would positively impact their communities.


We all work with the Sustainable Development Goals, climate action, and the sustainable energy transition so the coalition was a way for us to pool our strengths and directly impact the lives of prospective entrepreneurs to address some of the world’s greatest challenges.


The program will be run online over 12 weeks and lead up to a business plan competition between the fifteen participating teams who can win small-scale seed funding, internships at the Global Green Growth Institute, or conference bursaries to the 2021 International Student Energy Summit.
