Developing a Business Model for a Cleantech Accelerator

Technology business accelerators represents a relatively recent concept to accelerate the growth of technology companies. Little research has been done on how to best implement this concept to different sectors and the specific needs of the Cleantech sector received even less attention. My research will explore current accelerators’ design and develop a new business model for a Cleantech business accelerator that will be tailored to local conditions, expertise, and needs in the Greater Peterborough Area. When implemented, this new accelerator model will support the growth of local Cleantech companies, will generate new employment opportunities and will hopefully attract new investments to the region.
