Crowdfunding platform Lateuaterra to launch a new project

Lateuaterra, the first crowdfunding platform dedicated to projects that care for, protect and improve our immediate environment, has launched the second edition of the national ‘Climate Meetings’ awards. It seeks to promote female eco-entrepreneurial talent and help develop their ideas through micro-patronage, as well as raise awareness of climate change. Any female entrepreneur can participate in the call, which will remain open until April, 8th, by registering the environmental initiative on the Lateuaterra platform.

“With this second edition of the ‘Together for the Climate’ awards, we want to mobilize and consolidate the national e-commerce network led by women who are devising sustainable solutions to an increasingly pressing problem, such as climate change, and help develop their initiatives through an alternative funding channel, such as crowdfunding,” explained Belén Vázquez, founder of Lateuaterra. In this edition, all those women, both individually and in groups, who are of legal age and want to develop an eco-project can apply.

The jury will be made up of the platform’s technical committee

The jury made up of the platform’s Technical Committee and competition collaborators will evaluate the viability of the initiative, its sustainability, its positive impact on the environment, the support and previous experience available, the community that would benefit and the creativity of the initiative.

Regarding the theme, a special value will be given to those projects aimed at environmental education, the conservation of fauna and flora in the immediate environment, recycling, and waste management, the circular economy, sustainable and respectful of the planet and technological innovation in the environment.

The previous edition gathered contestants from different parts of Spain

In the previous edition, many ideas were presented from Catalonia, the Canary Islands, Castile and Leon, Valencia, Extremadura, Galicia, and Madrid.

The finalist projects ‘Un trocito de Luna en tus manos,’ whose objective is to recover the ecological production of thermal soaps in the Valle de la Luna (León) and ‘Viu la Bici’, oriented to the creation of a network of collective bicycle parking lots in Valencia, surpassed their financing objective and managed to collect $2,615 (€2,348) and $4,814 (€4,322) respectively, with an average contribution per sponsor of $54.10 (€48.60).

How to apply for the ‘Together for Climate’ awards

To register for the awards, participants must register their environmental initiative by filling out the form on the organizers’ website. In the registration of the idea, in the section “Choose a title for your project” you must include, next to the title, ‘Together for the Climate’. The deadline for submitting the call for proposals is April 8th.

Lateuaterra will reward the entrepreneur who has presented the best project with a theoretical and practical course on environmental crowdfunding, advice, and management of project communication during the crowdfunding campaign. In addition, it will offer a bonus of 5% of the money obtained in the campaign once it has been completed, up to $556 (€500).
