The TDP program is designed for early stage cleantech startups that are ready to engage with our accelerator community but not yet prepared for the in-depth and comprehensive commitment that Cleantech Open Northeast requires. The TDP provides mentoring support for those who are interested in receiving targeted, goal-oriented guidance. The program offers a dedicated match to one Cleantech Open mentor for the duration of the accelerator and discounted access to exclusive accelerator events.

Ironic Chemicals
Bronx, NY

We utilize environmentally toxic industrial by-products from mining and oil & gas industries as low to no cost feedstocks. For example, if all US copper mining waste was processed via our technology, we could generate $2B in revenue and reduce the risk of acid mine drainage while consuming 18,000 tons of CO2.
Social Solar
New York City, NY
Tech Category: Information & Communications Technologies
Social Solar envisions implementing a comprehensive user-focused engagement platform (online “solar matchmaker”) enabling Low-Moderate Income (LMI) residents of The Upper West side of New York City to gain access to solar energy through Community Shared Solar (CSS) energy providers.

With so many choices, people are overwhelmed.
