About

Cli­mate change and resource scarci­ty demand decen­tral­ized, renew­able ener­gy sys­tems and smart solu­tions world­wide. This requires con­stant inno­va­tion, embed­ded in local con­texts, to achieve the great­est impact. Star­tups solve the chal­lenges of a decen­tral­ized, renew­able ener­gy sup­ply out of their own context.

Startup|Energy is a joint ini­tia­tive of the Stiftung Solaren­ergie — Solar Ener­gy Foun­da­tion (Freiburg) and the Uni­ver­si­ty of Freiburg to pro­mote African star­tups in the field of decen­tralised, renew­able ener­gy supply.

As the lead­ing news plat­form for African star­tups and inno­va­tions in the field of decen­tralised renew­able ener­gy sup­ply, Startup|Energy offers impor­tant resources for star­tups, investors and oth­er supporters.

In addi­tion, Startup|Energy runs its own accel­er­a­tor pro­gramme with a strong focus on long-term sup­port through con­tin­u­ous coach­ing by expe­ri­enced entre­pre­neurs and build­ing a vibrant start­up community.
