Cleantech Open is the world's oldest and largest cleantech accelerator. Hear from past Maine success stories and learn how to have your participation cost covered by MTI, a $1250 value!
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).E2Tech is hosting a free, virtual event for startups about the Cleantech Open on Wednesday, March 10, at 4 p.m. Attendees will learn how to apply, how to have expenses covered by a scholarship from MTI, and may make a 60-second pitch to regional and national mentors and investors.
Both Maine’s 10-year Economic Development Strategy and the recent Strengthening Maine’s Clean Energy Economy report identify cleantech as a growth opportunity for Maine that will help the state grow its innovation economy and meet its nation-leading climate and clean energy goals.
Last year, two Maine startups – BaselineES of Yarmouth and Foothill Fuels of Portland – were among 47 entrants in the Cleantech Open, up from none the year before. This year, the group hopes to identify five high potential cleantech startups to participate.
Applications for this year’s Cleantech Open program are being taken untilApril 18.
