RECONOMY Snippet: On ClimateLaunchPad Kosovo

RECONOMY supported a concept of BONEVET Gjakova who partnered with ClimateLaunchPad (CLP—the green business ideas competition) and for the first time held a National Finals in Kosovo. BONEVET received 34 applications, but the eight most promising teams with their ideas participated in an intensive two-months Boot Camp training for preparation to pitch their green ideas in the National Finals. GoBeyond won the first place and were nominated to participate in the CLP’s Regional Finale, where they have been selected as the winners of the Food Systems theme. The participating teams of the National Finals have become part of the BONEVET incubator, thus directly contributing to the inclusive and green economic development in Kosovo. Here's a snippet by Arber Lleshi, Managing Director at BONEVET Gjakova, and Karsten Klapp, Founder of GoBeyond.
