Introducing the 2022 SixLab Accelerator Cohort
Meet the companies taking part in SixLab’s 6-month accelerator program.
. . .
The SixLab accelerator program gives startups in the energy industry the opportunity to accelerate their path to becoming a commercially viable product or service. These companies learn how to thrive in an increasingly competitive industry through world-class education, mentorship and resources. The program culminates in showcase events, where the startups get to pitch their concept to Shell, VC groups, angel investors, and other major players in energy.
We’re excited to announce the three startups chosen for the 2022 Accelerator Cohort.
Meet the Startups
