Cleantech | Deeptech Focus program to be at the forefront of sustainable innovations
Elevating Deeptech Startups
CLEANTECH | Deeptech FOCUS Batch
"By 2023, cleantech market could surpass the value of oil market, rising from $122 billion to $870 billion."
Beamline Accelerator Deeptech Program is empowering science-based startups in cleantech, that are incorporated in Estonia. Our primary focus areas include new materials, resource efficiency, and green chemistry. We offer non-dilutive support with product and business development services worth up to 100,000 euros to drive the success of these innovative ventures.
While sustainability has become a strategic agenda for companies and investors across sectors, cleantech has yet to cross the chasm. That’s why the focus of the sector is to fill the innovation gap and speed up the adoption of science-based solutions.
As the green transition continues to pick up steam, the cleantech market is entering more rapid growth in the year to come. The opportunities for the startups are vast, as well as are the challenges: differing state regulations, price volatility, or the increasing complexity of the cleantech ecosystem. More than ever, success depends on a thorough understanding of the technologies, operations, and market forces at play.
Mission of Beamline Deeptech program is to empower science-based cleantech entrepreneurs who are playing a crucial role in the European Union's goal of transitioning to a carbon-neutral economy by 2050. Beamline Accelerator's "Cleantech | Deeptech Focus" program is funded by the European Union — NextGenerationEU.
