The Rice Alliance Clean Energy Accelerator will increase the likelihood of success for early-stage energy startups building solutions for a cleaner, more efficient and sustainable future.

The 12-week accelerator provides startups access to Rice Alliance's network of energy corporations, investors, and advisors. With an engaged support network and personalized mentor relationships, startups will also experience curriculum and programming intentionally designed to increase their likelihood of success—bridging the gap between ideas and business success.

Once through the program, startups will be better positioned to attract capital and launch pilot programs and other initiatives, which can be facilitated through accelerator connections.

The accelerator will culminate in a Demo Day in conjunction with the 19th annual Rice Alliance Energy Venture Forum that brings together more than 700 members of the energy industry including investors, corporations and real opportunities for selling your business.

The Accelerator is part of The Ion's Accelerator Hub, along with The Ion Smart City Accelerator and DivInc's accelerator, which will provide startups a wider network, support system and extended reach. Rice Alliance has relationships with every major energy corporation in Houston and strong collaborations with energy investors.

Now accepting applications. Apply by May 2nd. Applications are reviewed and accepted on a rolling basis. We encourage you to apply early. Cohort 1 will be delivered virtually, beginning in the summer.
