EnergyLab accelerates clean energy start-ups

EnergyLab has opened applications for its Incubation Program in Hobart, Canberra and Lismore to support start-up companies creating renewable energy products and technologies. Working towards a 100% clean energy future, the EnergyLab Incubation Program is designed to cater to the unique needs of clean energy start-ups. Funded by the Australian Government, the program will support clean energy start-ups to succeed in Australian and international markets.

Startups will be accepted into the program on a rolling basis and successful applicants will receive a host of support including up to 10 months’ free coworking space, access to EnergyLab’s mentor network, legal and accounting advice and tailored workshops on start-up fundamentals.

2017 saw the launch of EnergyLab’s Acceleration Program, claimed to be the first program in Australia to focus entirely on assisting start-ups cultivating innovative energy solutions. Two years on, EnergyLab is expanding its reach to support a growing number of Australian entrepreneurs.

EnergyLab Co-Founder James Tilbury said, “EnergyLab’s vision is to support clean energy entrepreneurs no matter where they live. Thanks to support from the Australian Government we are now able to roll out our Incubation Program to Hobart, Canberra and Lismore.”

The Southern Cross Enterprise Lab, based at Southern Cross University, will host the program in Lismore, NSW. Enterprise Lab Manager Tanya Egerton commented, “Being a launch partner for the EnergyLab Incubation Program is the culmination of a lot of work we’ve done engaging the community and identifying the most promising start-ups in the region. We are excited to be on board and look forward to supporting founders in this globally connected program.”

Applications for the first intake of the Incubation Program in Hobart, Canberra and Lismore close Sunday, 24 March 2019. Selected start-ups will be announced in April before the launch of the program in each city in May 2019. For more information and to apply visit energylab.org.au/incubation.
