The Cleantech Open runs the world’s largest cleantech accelerator. Our mission is to find, fund and foster entrepreneurs with big ideas that address today’s most urgent energy, environmental and economic challenges.
The Cleantech Open provides entrepreneurs and technologists the resources needed to launch and create successful and sustainable clean technology companies. We do this through our accelerator programs which provide participants with training, mentoring, infrastructure, relationships and funding opportunities to help grow them into world-class cleantech companies.
Since its inception in 2006, the Cleantech Open has awarded over $6 million in cash and services to support cleantech growth companies. The 727 participating companies in the Cleantech Open’s accelerator programs have raised more than $800 million in external capital.
The Cleantech Open’s reputation is built on its clean technology Accelerator, the largest of its kind anywhere in the world. Cleantech Open alumni companies continue to score scientific breakthroughs, funding, deployments and customers.
