An online three-month Australia Clean Energy and CleanTech Accelerator Program, uniquely designed to support startups that have developed solutions accelerating the energy transition to renewable energy or reducing our environmental impact, and that are commercialization ready.

The program is supported by Artesian’s Clean Energy Seed Fund to invest in scalable, high growth startups, encouraging innovation, and creating opportunities in the development of clean technology.

The Brinc accelerator team takes a hands-on approach to support your startup, focusing on your specific growth challenges to tailor the acceleration program to suit your needs.

Applications will be accepted throughout the year and startups will be admitted to the program on a rolling basis. This format will allow for a more tailored curriculum and hands on support designed around the unique needs of each startup.

Our Offer

As investors, we will also secure the rights for follow on once you have showcased traction. Follow on check sizes can range between $200,000 to $1 Million AUD.

In addition to providing funding, the program will focus on facilitating opportunities with Australian Companies to help scope and secure commercial pilots / POCs while also helping to support each startup’s growth efforts locally and internationally.
