Climate-KIC Australia works with our partners to deliver programs across our Education and Innovation work streams.
The Accelerator prepares selected start-ups for investment and scale-up, creating a pool of ‘investment-ready’ opportunities. The Accelerator has been run as a pilot in Sydney in 2017 by EnergyLab, who provide a 12 month program to supercharge clean energy startups. Entrepreneurs receive training, connections to a network of investors, mentors and partners, and assistance in raising capital.
In 2018 we will work with EnergyLab and our University partners to rollout this program in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Canberra, Adelaide and Perth.
