Finovista, the Indian in-country partner of the Modern Energy Cooking Services (MECS)
Programme, has launched a ground-breaking global platform, Investor Pitching & Connect in Clean
Cooking 2023. This pioneering initiative aims to establish a transformative platform that bridges
the divide between investors and trailblazing innovators and entrepreneurs in the field of clean
cooking. Its ultimate mission is to unlock private finance opportunities and facilitate seamless
access to funding for these visionary ventures.

The programme is dedicated to creating a supportive ecosystem that empowers entrepreneurs,
enabling them to access finance through robust networks, personalized mentorship, and strategic
market connections. It also strives to bolster the capabilities of impact investors, private investors,
and financial institutions by equipping them with tailored technical assistance and comprehensive
knowledge about the clean cooking sector. This would empower stakeholders to make informed
decisions that could have far-reaching benefits for society, economy and environment.
Moreover, this programme is expected to serves as a pivotal starting point in building a sustainable
pipeline of both solution companies and investors in the long run. Consequently, India has the
potential to emerge as a global hub for clean cooking device solutions, with businesses evolving
into solution suppliers for other countries. Notably, the programme welcomes participation from
all nationalities worldwide through its virtual platform.
