Although the new president of the United States likes to believe that there is no such thing as climate change, that does not stop Climate-KIC from continuing their activities. The eco-friendly accelerator offers an intensive three-stages program for startups in the cleantech sector. The third and final stage of the program started last week with 10 startups lucky enough to make it to the final stage.
Getting ready for takeoff
After doing the first “Fundamentals” stage, and the second “Validation” stage, startups could apply for the final “Delivery” stage. In the first stage they learned to build an efficient and customer-oriented business-plan, which was then extensively validated in the second stage. The third stage is to get the business “ready for takeoff”. The Review Board of Climate-KIC selected 10 startups to join the final stage of the program.
