Pacific International Center for High Tech Research has launched Hawaii's first clean energy business accelerator program

The PICHTR Energy Excelerator program is now accepting applications for teams to participate in a one week Lightning Excelerator program.  The program will select seed stage startups and entrepreneurs (ideally with a prototype) for a one week mentor- and investor-driven program based in Hawaii.  Participants will receive mentoring and expertise from industry professionals, cleantech investors, and experienced entrepreneurs to identify major needs for the growth of their business.  Teams that successfully complete the program will have the opportunity to win up to $90,000 in funding to further develop their business or technology.
