Vermont launches business accelerator focused on energy

January 16, 2020

While states across the country are focusing more on clean energy and climate change, SSTI is happy to share an opportunity from one of our members. The Vermont Sustainable Jobs Fund, a Vermont based entrepreneurial support organization, announced the launch of the Delta Clime VT Energy 2020 business accelerator. This business accelerator is focused specifically on startup and/or seed stage technology ventures who offer products or services, including smart home and building technologies, aimed at reducing fossil fuel use and greenhouse gas emissions in buildings; enable better integration of distributed resources and smart building technologies; increase resiliency and/or support demand management strategies that avoid peak time energy usage. This program will assist up to 10 innovative energy startups to grow their businesses, connect with mentors and advisors, and gain exposure to customers and investors. Applications are due by Feb. 16. Learn more at www.DeltaClimeVT.com.
