TENDER FOR THE PURCHASE OF SERVICES OF A PROFESSIONAL PITCH COACH

The  Ukrainian NGO “Impact Force” announces a tender for the purchase of the services of a professional pitch trainer to prepare the participants of the “Energy Efficiency Innovators of Ukraine” program for short speeches at the Demo Day in front of potential clients and investors and guests of the event.

The services will be provided as part of the “Innovators of Energy Efficiency of Ukraine” program, which is aimed at forming a new generation of forward-thinking leaders and creating an inclusive ecosystem that will enable innovators in the energy sector to move Ukraine towards a resilient and sustainable future.

The “Energy Efficiency Innovators of Ukraine” program is implemented by Impact Force with the support of the “Promotion of Energy Efficiency and Implementation of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive in Ukraine” project, implemented by GIZ on behalf of the German government and co-financed by the Swiss government.

RELEVANCE
According to the World Bank, the war in general and targeted strikes have caused great damage to the Ukrainian energy sector. They have caused severe infrastructure damage, power outages, economic losses, security risks, and are hindering the country’s progress toward a sustainable energy future. Estimated damage is at least $1.2 billion, although the true extent of the destruction in Russian-controlled areas remains unclear due to limited information.

PURPOSE OF THE PROGRAM
This initiative aims to identify players in the energy efficiency market and provide them with the skills and knowledge needed to make significant changes in the energy sector and the economy of Ukraine in general. The program is not limited to traditional business education as it not only meets the immediate business needs of the participants, but also develops a culture of sustainable and innovative energy solutions.

STRATEGIC GOALS AND MEASURES OF THE PROGRAM
The program will be reinforced by a nationwide communication campaign to promote and highlight the needs and challenges of the energy sector.
As part of the Program, we plan to implement the following measures to accelerate the transformation of the energy sector of Ukraine:
Development of a stakeholder map of at least 50 key organizations and enterprises from various fields that offer or produce innovative energy solutions in Ukraine.
Business needs assessment to identify and address immediate, mid-term and long-term needs of participants.
Creation of a network of innovative market players in the field of energy efficiency to lay a solid foundation for Ukraine’s sustainable energy future.
Provision of targeted expert advice and management assistance from first-class international and national experts to improve participants’ business plans and presentations, thereby increasing their commercial appeal to national and international buyers.
Organization of a demonstration day where the 30 finalists will meet together and meet international and national experts and potential buyers.

As a result, the participants of the Program will launch the processes of energy-efficient restoration and transformation of the market. In addition, five companies will be selected to participate in the Impact Business Acceleration Program.
