Our five inaugural CleanTech Accelerate Program participants are in week three of their training and mentor support from Ecofuel, a Montreal-based clean technology accelerator.

This week’s workshop focused on negotiation. (So far we’ve covered IP strategies; value propositions; freedom to operate and IP landscape; tax credits and sponsorships, all taught by a pretty engaging bunch of experts.) Most of the cohort get-togethers are done via videoconferencing, which is why there are more coffee cups than people in the photo here!

The Ecofuel support is on top of the three-day thenextphase business acceleration workshop we delivered to the cohort in August, ongoing guidance from the Innovacorp team (and a few of our friends), and the $20,000 cash each company receives so they can address key technical and business milestones.
