The Cleantech Open is a not-for-profit organization that runs the world’s largest accelerator for cleantech startups. Our mission is to find, fund and foster entrepreneurs with big ideas that address today’s most urgent energy, environmental and economic challenges.
Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI)—an independent nonprofit founded in 1982—transforms global energy use to create a clean, prosperous, and secure low-carbon future. It engages businesses, communities, institutions, and entrepreneurs to accelerate the adoption of market-based solutions that cost-effectively shift from fossil fuels to efficiency and renewables. RMI has offices in Basalt and Boulder, Colorado; New York City; Washington, D.C.; and Beijing.
The Urban Future Lab (UFL) is New York City’s hub for smart cities, clean energy and smart grid technology. Our programs include ACRE, a business incubation program for pre-seed to series A startups, PowerBridgeNY, a proof-of-concept center commercializing research from local universities, and Clean Start, an advanced diploma from NYU for people seeking a transition into the cleantech sector. The UFL is part of the NYU Tandon School of Engineering and is located in the Downtown Brooklyn.
