CCIA Announces Cleantech Fellows Institute

The Colorado Cleantech Industry Association has announced the creation of the Cleantech Fellows Institute designed to create new and robust leadership for emerging cleantech markets. 
 This 17-week intensive program is the first of its kind in the nation and will focus on transforming C-level executives to lead near-market cleantech companies.
Applicants strongly encouraged to apply are former executives from the aerospace, biotechnology and enterprise technology industries who have a desire to transition to the cleantech industry. Those accepted into the program will receive opportunities for networking, accelerated training from cleantech industry experts and exposure to a variety of clean technologies.
Candidates should have prior experience in raising capital, managing the growth of an early stage company and must be able to commit to the four-month program.
With Colorado being a natural hub for cleantech, it only made sense for the program to kick-off here. Beginning Sept. 17 and running through Jan. 2013, the intensive program will be made up of eight weeks in Colorado at various locations including the Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL) and seven weeks held “virtually.”
Some areas of focus for the curriculum will include: energy storage, advanced transportation technologies, building technologies and energy efficiency.
Deadline for applications is July 6, with interviews also scheduled in July.
