ACCEL Year 2 Kickoff Event
Kickoff Year 2 of our accelerator program for BIPOC-led startups!
Join us to celebrate the kickoff of Year 2 of ACCEL, an accelerator program from Greentown Labs and Browning the Green Space (BGS) designed to support BIPOC-led climatetech startups. At this event, hear from innovative startups that are developing climate solutions for sectors encompassing electricity, transportation, buildings, manufacturing, agriculture, and more.
The second iteration of ACCEL follows on a successful inaugural year that featured six startups working on innovations as diverse as sneakers made from food waste, ultracapacitors built with hemp sourced from Black and Indigenous farmers, and ultra-light solar panels. Their accomplishments during the accelerator included raising equity funding, earning acceptances into additional accelerators, winning grants, executing customer discovery, and more.
Take this opportunity to network, celebrate, and build community around this incredible program and meet the Year 2 cohort, which will be announced in the coming weeks! Are you an investor or corporate leader planning to attend? We’re looking to connect our cohort of founders with resources essential to success. We welcome conversation around how you can support! Please reach out to ACCEL Program Manager, Sonali Anderson (email@example.com), for more info.
ACCEL is a year-long program that combines acceleration with a curated curriculum, incubation through a Greentown membership, and extensive mentorship from Greentown and BGS’s networks of industry experts. The program is designed to bolster BIPOC-led startups as they develop critical climatetech solutions by offering access to funding, networking connections, resources, and opportunities that structural inequities put out of reach.
