Clean Energy Trust Selects Two ThinkEnergy Teams for Inaugural University Accelerator

Yesterday, the Clean Energy Trust announced the inaugural cohort for the Clean Energy Trust (CET) University Accelerator, a business accelerator that supports student entrepreneurs working on impactful cleantech solutions based in the Midwest. 

Two out of five ThinkEnergy teams were selected: EnvironFlo and STARS Sensors, LLC. EnvironFlo provides an effective, cost-friendly, and green solution for oil spill clean up using a superhydrophobic coating on a mesh screen to separate oil from water with over 99% efficiency. STARS Sensors, LLC. develops a self-powered sensor device and data analytics/visualization dashboard for power generation plants and other industrial applications. 

In this program, the teams will connect with industry advisors and receive hands-on support and pitch coaching from the experienced Clean Energy Trust team to help accelerate their businesses. The CET University Accelerator will occur remotely during the summer, starting June 8, and will culminate in a demo day in the fall. At the demo day, teams will showcase their businesses to cleantech ecosystem stakeholders and compete for cash prize awards.
