About this Program
As one of eight regional partners for the Department of Energy’s Cleantech University Prize, Clean Energy Trust will showcase the most innovative and promising university-based cleantech companies in the Midwest, of which one will receive a $50,000 grant.
Clean Energy Trust intends to maximize each student applicant’s access to quality mentorship, business development, and exposure. Finalist teams will be selected to take part in a mini-accelerator, where they will have access to CET’s leading network of mentors, tailored curriculum, and our community of experienced innovators.
The winner of our final event – the Cleantech UP Showcase – will be determined by a panel of expert cleantech industry judges. The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers will also go on to present at the DoE National Cleantech UP competition.
