Access to mentoring and substantial support from leading energy companies – these priceless benefits are on offer to the participants of PowerUp! by InnoEnergy. The third edition of the competition (known until now as KICkoff) for startups and energy industry entrepreneurs from 23 countries in Central and Eastern Europe begins.

ABC Accelerator is organizing the national PowerUp competition for Slovenia.

The aim of the Competition is to select and accelerate the best CEE start-ups working on sustainable energy. Candidates must have an innovative plan connected with energy, proof of concept, team and a prototype.

Successful applicants will take part in unique bootcamp workshops to hone their ideas and develop skills to accelerate their businesses towards commercialisation – including professional mentoring and expert knowledge-sharing programmes. The best startups will progress to the national finals where they will pitch their innovative solutions to a panel of CEE industry, startup and energy experts.

15 start-ups selected from 23 participating countries in CEE will advance to the grand finals in Budapest in November to battle it out for financial prizes and the opportunity to join InnoEnergy’s exclusive Highway programme.
