Accelerate Program

CEBIP Accelerate helps international visionaries navigate the U.S. startup ecosystem’s bumpy roads.

Foreign clean-energy startups – even those with advanced technologies and real traction at home – have much to learn about U.S. markets. And the first lesson is not all organizational structures or business models translate directly to U.S. industry.

Through an intensive six-month program – customized to each participating company’s specific strengths and needs – CEBIP Accelerate helps early-stage executives from abroad understand the demands of doing business domestically, and develop the best strategies to do it better.

With an expert combination of core leaders, top-tier advisors and sector-spanning partners, CEBIP Accelerate has the resources to convert science to success in highly competitive U.S. markets – and turn international innovators into domestic dynamos.
