Greenstart Accelerator Supports Cleantech Startups With $115,000

Greenstart, a San Francisco-based accelerator for cleantech-IT start-ups, offers mentoring, networking and other typical incubator functions, and also invests $15,000 in a company when they join.

In addition, they’re now offering startups a $100,000 convertible note.

Convertible notes will be drawn from a $6 million fund, which will cover the next 60 companies in the program.

Greenstart focuses on companies innovating at the intersection of cleantech and information technology, primarily in four areas: smart grid, the built environment, transportation, and consumer services. Companies accepted into Greenstart’s accelerator all leverages software in some way to create innovative new energy solutions in these areas.
