Climate-KIC’s Accelerator in the Netherlands is looking for ambitious cleantech start-ups to apply. The next round closes on 12 February 2015.

Technology start-ups seldom fail on technology, they fail on commercialisation. We can help you solve real customer problems. We help you think, act and grow big, so you can reach global domination in your chosen market niche. In three stages, our 18-month programme brings you the knowledge, resources, tools and coaching cleantech start-ups need for success.


Accelerator is currently recruiting candidates for stage 1, The Fundamentals. This first stage consists of a two-day boot camp followed by 6-8 sessions filled with workshops, peer-2-peer sessions and start-up stories. Fundamentals comes with a €10,000 grant.


Applications for stage 1 closes February 12th 2015. On March 11 the shortlist will be announced. Next programme round starts 13-15 April 2015. Download your checklist application form here.
