CivTech Alliance Global Scale-Up Programme 2.0

Book now for GSUP 2.0 briefing sessions - Throughout the open call, we will be hosting live engagement sessions so you can find out more about the programme and how you can benefit:


The deadline for applications is 6th June 09:00 BST

We are in the second year of this hugely exciting and highly innovative programme which draws together leading GovTech and CivTech innovation programmes from around the world to deliver a global platform for fast-growth companies to access policymakers, procurers and investors across regional ecosystems. And from there, to present at events coinciding with COP27 in November.

For scale-ups this is an unprecedented access programme: we have 12 innovation teams across 9 countries waiting to help you gain access to the in-country innovation ecosystems. Last year, during a seven-week ‘Scale-up Safari’ preceding COP26, we scheduled 69 engagement sessions with policymakers and procurers, investors and innovators across ten participating countries. Over 200 introductions were made from 102 organisations, including the NASA open innovation team, the Federal Emergency Management Agency of the US Government, top researchers in the field of sustainability, ministers of environment and international trade, and gatekeepers of the €500m German family office funds.

For stakeholders across governments, NGOs, the climate change community, investors and sponsors this is a unique opportunity to engage and collaborate with scale-ups across North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Australia to deliver real impact on climate change. Check out the government, academic and NGO teams participating in this year’s programme.  

The GSUP 2.0 Challenges

The final challenges that we will be asking companies to respond to are still being developed and finalised. Below is an overview of the two broad areas we intend to focus on: 

Challenge 1: Adaptation and Green Growth - How can communities use data and technology to make ‘nature-smart’ choices and drive scalable green growth?

Challenge 2: Green Public Procurement  (GPP) - How can data and technology help the public sector procure greener services and reduce the environmental impact of the supply chain?
