The Cleantech Marketplace Forum (CTMF) is a not-for-profit foundation set up as a global platform with Singapore as a hub, in connecting cleantech companies with low carbon technologies or solutions, against projects, investment and financing and vice versa, across Asia Pacific, Europe and North America. The objectives are to help drive low carbon, climate resilient, sustainable growth and increase investment in the deployment of proven technologies to address climate change challenges.
The CTMF seeks to assist cleantech companies to tap onto the Asian Development Bank (ADB)’s Low Carbon Technology Marketplace (LCTM) where upstream IP and downstream clean technology solutions will be matched with IP buyers and end users for the effective low carbon technology transfer to the Asia Pacific region. Cleantech Marketplace Forums are held as investment roadshows around the world in places such as Silicon Valley, Vancouver, Geneva, Dubai, Beijing, Hong Kong and Singapore, in collaboration with regional cleantech events by Global Cleantech Cluster Association (GCCA) or local cleantech partners.
The CTMF was initiated by VISIONEDGE Technologies (VT), an International Alternative Investment Review (IAIR) Awards 2014 winner as “the Best Company for Sustainability - Cleantech South East Asia” for its commitment to promote green businesses by assisting the expansion of high-growth technology-based companies, especially in the cleantech sector, and for its Business Incubator and Enterprise Accelerator Programmes.
VT is also the ADB’s implementation consultant in the design and roll out of its Low Carbon Technology Marketplace (LCTM) for the Asia Pacific region. VT runs GAC Ventures which operates a Growth Acceleration Centre (GAC) in Singapore. Internationally, VT is a local partner for GCCA.
