Startup GreenWhat is Startup Green?

The intensive experience will provide entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs the opportunity to share ideas, collaborate, expand skillsets, identify market barriers, and develop and polish business plans with help from industry mentors. 

What sets Startup Green apart from other accelerator/incubators?

This unique experience of a world class Summit, alongside a business development program, provides participants with direct access to successful cleantech pioneers and investors. Mentors in the finance, policy, business, engineering and NGO sectors will assist with business plan development, networking and foresight into the cleantech marketplace.

Sign-up and submit an idea. Participants pay registration fee and submit an idea to be screened by AREI/NREL.

Collaborate with participants and mentors. Participants are logged into our virtual collaboration portal to pitch and discuss their ideas to other program attendees.

Join a team and develop roles. Idea leaders have the opportunity to pitch and recruit addition team members with the assistance from AREI/NREL.

Convene in Aspen/Snowmass for the two day incubator/accelerator. Face to face networking events, on-site team workspace, and access to leading cleantech pioneers.

Build a business and expand your network. Teams will be invited to present to hundreds of attendees, potential investors and leading companies at the AREDAY Summit on August 12th! Click here to view the AREDAY 2015 Summit Speakers

Virtual Collaboration Space

Upon completing registration, the AREI and NREL will screen submitted ideas. Participants will then be placed in a virtual collaboration space to pitch potential ideas to fellow participants, vote on ideas, discuss skillsets, formulate teams, and begin networking with mentors in anticipation of the two-day event.

Team Formation

Teams will be formed by participants in the Virtual Collaboration Space. We encourage teams to have a maximum of five participants with calculated, diverse skillsets. Individuals interested in participating that do not have an idea to contribute are encouraged to participate in the idea refinement process and join an established team.
