Come join us at Cloudport in Portland for our Spring Networking Reception and The Cleantech Open Northeast Kickoff! Mingle with everyone from brand new startups to large, established companies, and make new, valuable connections.
The Cleantech Open is the oldest and largest cleantech startup accelerator program, with the mission to find, fund, and foster entrepreneurs with ideas to solve our greatest environmental and energy challenges. Through their annual business competition and accelerator program, they connect cleantech startups with the people and resources that will accelerate their success, and provide a national platform for public visibility. As the Maine "partner" for Cleantech Open Northeast (CTONE), E2Tech hosts a kickoff event for companies to learn more about the accelerator and competition, and for mentors to learn more about the mentorship program.
In 2016, two Maine companies, Delta Dewatering and F.E. Wood Natural Energy, were semi-finalists. In the last six years, Surge Hydro, Pika Energy, and Rapport have all won the regional award. Surge Hydro was awarded a recognition at the national competition in California in 2017.
