The Cleantech Open launched this week and is now accepting applications from entrepreneurial innovators in the renewable energy and green technology fields.
The Cleantech Open aims to help people with great ideas and little experience get funding to make those ideas into realities.
Winning ideas in the past have included several solar energy technologies and new applications for solar.
“This is just the first phase,” said Cleantech spokesman Tim Cox. “We’re trying to get as many teams as possible of cleantech innovators to apply.”
Good News!! The contest has major financial backing from Wells Fargo Bank and Chevron among others, he said. And it’s part of a larger network of global cleantech accelerator programs.
