With clean technology -- everything from learning thermostats to transparent insulation -- among the country’s fastest growing economic sectors, entrepreneurs in Maine are being offered financial incentives and logistical support to compete in the nation’s largest “cleantech” startup accelerator program, the Cleantech Open.
The Cleantech Open seeks to find, fund, and foster entrepreneurs in cleantech. Support for Maine cleantech entrepreneurs to participate in the Open is made available by E2Tech, the Maine Technology Institute (MTI), and the Governor’s Energy Office (GEO). It is an intense, summerlong program that will pair you with mentors and support and bring your company to the next level.
E2Tech and MTI will cover most of the Cleantech Open participation fee for startups based in Maine.
For Cleantech Open participants in the Northeast, there are cash prizes worth $60,000, including 4 general prizes and 2 special prizes for startups in Ag/Food/Land Use and Carbon Sequestration/CCUS, plus over $300,000 in goods and services for the cleantech startups.
