The 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 their annual business competition and accelerator program, they connect cleantech startups with the people and resources that will accelerate their success, and provide a national platform for public visibility.
You will hear from Cleantech Open Northeast leaders and learn more about how the program can help you grow your cleantech venture, expand your businesses' services to young companies, or mentor entrepreneurs looking to solve our biggest environmental and energy challenges. In addition, you will hear from business owners who successfully competed in the Cleantech Open last year.
Last year two Maine companies, Delta Dewatering and F.E. Wood Natural Energy were semi-finalists, and Surge Hydro was one of four regional winners, and was awarded a recognition at the national competition in California! Surge Hydro joins two other Maine companies, Pika Energy and Rapport, who have won the regional award in the last five years.
