InnoEnergy, the innovation engine for sustainable energy across Europe, has opened the Call for Partnerships for businesses to become InnoEnergy Hubs – in-country representatives in Central Europe. Applications are open until 31st July 2017.
InnoEnergy Hubs are local offices operated by ambitious partners, who are looking to build their local position, strengthen their business model and become a leading actor in the local ecosystem by playing a role in our European Network.
Successful applicants become part of InnoEnergy’s network with access to business training, employee mentoring and potential funding. The role of InnoEnergy HUBs includes identifying and developing promising sustainable energy ideas, engaging investors and industry, and organising mentoring for InnoEnergy’s community members.
“This is a unique opportunity for companies to become a vital part of InnoEnergy’s sustainable energy community,” says Christo Balinow, Business Development Manager – North America, CEE and Middle East KIC InnoEnergy. “We are looking for sustainable energy businesses that are passionate about the sector and want to be a part of something big. Successful partners will be a driving force for supporting entrepreneurship, innovation and the commercialisation of game changing ideas.”
We are currently looking for partners to operate InnoEnergy Hubs supported by the InnoEnergy Power Alliance platform in the following countries:
