Innovation Bridge

Matching cleantech startups with corporations seeking innovation.

Innovative Sourcing matches corporations seeking new energy and technology solutions with early-stage ventures. The program accelerates the pace of clean energy innovation in the Midwest region and beyond through real business opportunities between corporations and startups.

Innovative Sourcing is a fully customizable program that ranges from a few-week informal brainstorm to a six-month, comprehensive engagement involving external consulting partners.   Clean Energy Trust will work hand-in-hand with your organization to: identify emerging energy technology areas of interest, source startups and entrepreneurs with the most promising solutions, and deliver a curated portfolio of potential solution providers. The process culminates with a technology showcase event in which selected companies pitch the corporations and discuss opportunities for further engagement.
