Event Description

An opportunity to celebrate the kickoff of ACCE (Advancing Climatech and Cleantech Leaders), an accelerator program developed in partnership between Greentown Labs and Browning the Green Space (BGS). At this event, hear from innovative startups with BIPOC leaders who are developing climate solutions for sectors including electricity, transportation, buildings, manufacturing, and agriculture.

Greentown Labs and BGS recognize that the climate tech industry must change the status quo to put founders of color in the position to lead technology-driven companies that address climate change, support the development of diverse workforces, and fiercely advocate for the deployment of clean technologies in underserved communities.

About Accel

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.

About Browning The Green Space
