23 October sees the close of the sustainable energy innovators’ last chance to apply for investment funding in 2017.
InnoEnergy has announced the cut-off date for applications to its 2017 Investment Round which aims to support and launch clean energy innovations. Cleantech innovators looking for investment must apply by 23 October in order to receive support in time.
This year alone, InnoEnergy has invested €23.5m in projects crossing eight technology areas across Europe, taking its total financial commitment since its launch in 2011 to €170.5m.
CEO of InnoEnergy Diego Pavia said: “It’s our mission to provide sustainable energy innovators with the flexible and adaptable funding they need to succeed and grow – and, ultimately, bring forth the future of clean energy. The continued success of our Investment Rounds shows that we’re on the right track.”
Funding from this year has been spread across 144 partners – in excess of 40% of InnoEnergy’s 323 partnerships to date. From these, 252 are in industry, 130 are SMEs and 142 are academics.
“Our support goes far beyond funding. As the only organisation to offer a comprehensive set of support services – from marketing to business strategy and beyond – alongside mentorship from our network of more than 300 partners and an open innovation ecosystem, InnoEnergy is proud to act as the commercial co-pilot to European cleantech’s pacesetters.”
The Investment Round is open to European technology concepts which are proven to help in changing the future of the energy industry.
