GSUP 3.0 Policy Maker and Procurer Matchmaking Day

The GovTech Global Alliance Scale-Up Programme helps scale-up companies accelerate product roll-out of net-zero and climate change solutions for public sector organisations across the world.

Our mission is to source, surface and scale climatetech solutions for global public service application. The third iteration of this award-winning helps scale-ups connect with policy makers, procurers and investors from all over the world. The purpose is to provide a gateway to public sector and ecosystem decision makers that are otherwise challenging to access.  

This year, the Global Scale-up Programme 3 (GSUP) brings together 12 country programme teams looking to solve challenges on Biodiversity Management, Agrifood and Water systems, and decarbonisation in value chains and buildings. These COP28-related challenges are global issues and resonate in different ways in different parts of the world. Like last year, they are broad challenges thus allowing for a spectrum of solutions that tackle different elements of the challenges.   

During the virtual programme companies will be given global perspectives on how to sell to the public sector, landing pads for international markets, insights into what green investors are looking for, and how diversity and inclusion is essential for business and product development.  

With selected programme teams from Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Denmark, Egypt, Greece, Lithuania, Nigeria, New Zealand, Scotland and Spain, this is your opportunity to join a global cohort of scaling businesses and get to know the key players behind the govtech / climatetech ecosystems within our global alliance. 

Using the information gathered in the internationalisation session, we will set up a match-making session between the cohort and policy makers / procurers from across the regions, split by the themes. In essence, this will be a speed dating session around the world!
