Can I use the clone from "Invoke Duplicity" to cast a concentration spell, since the clone requires concentration itself?

For example, could I use the clone to cast invisibility on one of my allies who is too far away from me to cast it normally?

I know that I would lose concentration on the clone when I cast a concentration spell, but would the clone exist long enough to still cast the spell on my ally?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    \$\begingroup\$ While there is some difference between a Concentration Spell and the Channel Divinity Concentration mechanic, functionally they are the same and therefore the duplicate question is exactly the answer to this problem. \$\endgroup\$ – NautArch Jan 9 '18 at 16:02
  • \$\begingroup\$ I read this as being a different question. The proposed dupe is about casting concentration spell B for an instant effect without breaking concentration on a previously-cast spell A. This question is about switching concentration to spell B, where spell B is cast through a clone created by concentrating on spell A. \$\endgroup\$ – Oblivious Sage Jan 10 '18 at 0:51
