The Clean Energy Trust Challenge is a nationally recognized accelerator for clean energy innovation. Run by Chicago-based Clean Energy Trust, the Challenge has led to the development and growth of over 95 businesses throughout the Midwest.
The hallmark of the CET Challenge accelerator is the annual pitch competition that takes place in Chicago. This event brings together venture capitalists, industry executives, civic leaders, the media and the public to watch startups pitch their businesses and hear keynote addresses by prominent thought leaders. By combining access to capital with access to premier mentorship and national exposure, Clean Energy Challenge finalists receive value beyond funding.
