Selection Criteria:
All applicants will go through the selection criteria as described below:
Internal Committee: The internal committee will meet, provide due diligence and appraise all applicants that
applied to the CLIX platform. Applicants that do not meet the eligibility criteria will be excluded from the CLIX
platform and notified.
Selection Committee: The selection committee consists of prominent and elite players from the sustainability
and climate change industry (private and public sectors). The selection committee will choose the top
entrepreneurs (up to 30 Semi-finalists) that are suitable for elevator pitch at the CLIX platform. The selection
committee criteria is based on the following:
• Innovation: The idea must be either new (original), or demonstrates a marked improvement to an
existing solution. Innovation does not necessarily mean technology. The entrepreneur takes up an
important part of the total grade.
• Scalability: A startup should not be limited to a local market. At a minimum, a nationwide market
should be targeted. Preferably, the business should be easy to replicate regionally or globally as the
company expands.
• Team: Judges look for experience, value added, and the relevance of each team member to the project.
