Massive Earth Foundation has launched GoMassive Climate Accelerator (GCA) in partnership with Amazon Web Service (AWS) and Climate Angels.
The accelerator program is now inviting applications from early stage Indian startups with a focus on climate tech. Bootstrapped or startups funded up to $5 million can apply for the four week program which will kick off with three days in person boot camp in Bengaluru, and transition to 4 week virtual sessions.
In the boot camp, chosen 20 startups will engage with leading climate-tech investors and industry experts to receive mentorship, training on product, design, growth, and leadership development. The selected startups will also receive up to $25,000 AWS activate credits.
According to Massive Earth Foundation, the accelerator program centers around six critical climate-tech verticals : digital solutions for sustainability, clean energy, sustainable agriculture, low carbon transport, sustainable cities, and industrial decarbonization.
The program concludes with a Demo Day where entrepreneurs will pitch their startups to investors including prominent angels and seek funding. Applicants (startups) must have a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) and an operational website.
In July, Massive Earth Foundation (MEF) launched LowCarbon.Earth, a climate tech accelerator focused on startups solving for climate change and pollution.
