Accel-VT sparks accelerated business growth in order to support the expanding cluster of entrepreneurs committed to climate economy innovation. Accel-VT invites startup or seed stage ventures from Vermont, around the U.S. and Canada to apply for this climate economy business accelerator. 

Founders who are interested in scaling their ag & food tech businesses are encouraged to apply. Learn from industry mentors, investors and entrepreneurs and develope a new path to customers.   Consumer demand for sustainable products, coupled with the desire to understand where those products come from, has created the need for technological advancements in the agricultural value chain.

Rural economies nationwide and around the globe are struggling to maintain their local food systems and reduce their dependence on fossil fuels, especially as extreme weather events become more prevalent. Vermont is a leader in the incubation and development of forward thinking food and energy businesses and is making a concerted effort to attract the next generation of climate friendly businesses to the state.

Entrepreneurs participating in Accel-VT come from Vermont and around the U.S. and Canada, typically at a startup or seed stage of development. Companies with at least two team members, demonstrated market adoption in the form of a pilot or paying customer and some level of investment or grant other than founder capital are encouraged to apply.

Accel-VT cohort members will be selected based on their ability to use technology to help solve pressing agriculture and food system issues facing society.
