Clean Energy Trust is a nonprofit that supports early-stage cleantech entrepreneurs with direct investment, venture growth services, and ecosystem development.

About this Accelerator

Clean Energy Trust invests in the entrepreneurs leading the clean technology revolution. We believe that helping to build profitable, scalable businesses in energy, water, and agtech is a powerful force to better the environment and tackle climate change.

We have developed a unique model to invest in promising technology and founders who otherwise might not be able to get off the ground. We refer to this model as our 501vc ™ platform. We combine the best of the venture capital funding model with a mission-driven non-profit organization. Through our Seed fund, we have invested in 23 companies across the Midwest.
