About the Clean Energy program

In this eight-week program, running from April to June 2024, we match European startups with corporate partners internationally. The program is light enough to allow participants to focus on their own business development during the process. The Kick-off event and the concluding Summit are physical events, allowing for participants to connect with peers and other program participants, while other activities are managed online.

A top-ranked program feature is the matchmaking opportunities arranged during the program, with 1-to-1 meetings based on participants’ offerings and interests.

The program also provides one online sessions per week on relevant topics, such as pricing and B2B Sales conversion. Participation in these is optional, and sessions are recorded to allow for catching up on relevant sessions afterwards.

In the eight-week program startups get:

  • Handheld matchmaking with corporate partners across Europe.
  • Investor pitch and matchmaking with preferred investors.
  • Workshops with experts that will help you understand, approach, and engage with corporates.
  • Peer-to-peer network with best-in-class startups from all over Europe
  • Physical kick-off event in Eindhoven, The Netherlands on April 16-17, 2024.
  • Concluding Summit in Barcelona, Spain on June 19, 2024 (optional dinner on June 18 for early arrivals).
