WE FIND, FUND, AND FOSTER THE MOST PROMISING CLEANTECH
STARTUPS ON THE PLANET.
Cleantech Open is…
the oldest and largest cleantech startup accelerator program, with the mission to find, fund, and foster entrepreneurs with ideas to solve our greatest environmental and energy challenges. Through our annual business competition and accelerator program, we connect cleantech startups with the people and resources that will accelerate their success, and provide a national platform for public visibility.
The Cleantech Open is a non-profit, startup accelerator that focuses on the clean technology area. It is active across the United States in eight regions and also runs a global ideas competition.
Since 2005, the Cleantech Open has awarded over $6 million in cash and services. And the 1000+ companies in the Cleantech Open’s accelerator programs have raised more than $1.1 billion in external capital.
Cleantech Open Southeast Covers...
Alabama, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia. Cleantech Open Southeast was founded in 2005 as part of the national Cleantech Open organization. With five active regions across the US, our ultimate goal is to have these connections be truly global where a startup based in Minneapolis can receive mentoring from an expert in Denver – or Paris, license its technology to a strategic partner in Texas – or Delhi, and receive capital from Boston, Sand Hill Road, or a corporate investor anywhere in the world. Cleantech Open provides the platform for that kind of interaction and visibility.
