WHAT WE DO
Energia Ventures is a three-month intensive accelerator for entrepreneurs with an innovative business in the energy, smart grid, artificial intelligence, cleantech, and cybersecurity sectors. We provide funding, mentoring, and programming to take your business to the next stage. Some of the great benefits you'll receive by participating in the program include:
You'll face new challenges as you craft your business. To equip you, we offer intensive training that develops your entrepreneurial skillset. These sessions will prepare you to tackle the problems you face today and the ones you'll encounter later down the road.
Our team of experienced professionals are available throughout the program to develop your business strategy, refine your focus, and ensure you capture your vision and reach your goals.
Our entrepreneurs access all resources available to students of the University of New Brunswick. We can make arrangements for you to access laboratories, world class researchers, and special equipment for prototyping (such as the university makerspace).
We offer free office space (desks, Wi-Fi, printer) in the Energia Ventures office for participating ventures. We can also book rooms
on campus and in the downtown core for private meetings or presentations.
Our staff and mentors encourage collaboration amongst our cohort. We do our best to foster an environment of peer-to-peer support; something we know is important as you grow your venture.
For companies that are venture capital ready, we'll be prepping your pitches and connecting you with venture capital and angel groups; as well as agencies that can provide non-dilutive sources of funding.
