Influence the future of energy with Startupbootcamp’s Renewable Energy & Net Zero Accelerator Programme 2023: Apply Now! (Sponsored)

With the aim of supercharging startups that will help us achieve the SDGs by 2030, Startupbootcamp’s 2023 Renewable Energy & Net-Zero Accelerator Programme is now open for applications!

Reaching the 2030 SDGs and creating a more inclusive, more sustainable society requires fundamental changes in how our society and economy operate. Driving this change are innovative thinkers, disruptive startups and fresh ways of thinking that challenge the status quo. 

One of the greatest challenges of our generation is combatting the climate crisis. Creating a carbon-neutral society and economy and reaching a palace of Net Zero is now the top priority on agendas for governments, businesses and organisations across the world – and energy is the space which can have an immense impact. 

Moving to cleaner, greener energy is seen as one of the most promising ways to create a more sustainable future and startups are helping facilitate that change. The global energy industry is rapidly changing – and that needs to keep happening in order to ensure power security and reliability for all households and businesses whilst reducing emissions and managing costs.
