Partners - North East


The Cleantech Offshore Renewables Accelerator is the Launch Academy programme specifically for the North East of England. The programme has been established to accelerate early-stage SME cleantech solutions from across the region, in order to enhance the North East’s offshore wind supply chain and drive cost reduction through innovation.

To achieve this, we have designed a 12-week accelerator programme for companies looking to break into the offshore wind sector. We have secured funding and support from a wide range of specialist companies, ensuring that successful businesses joining the accelerator will have a unique package of support from the delivery partners.

The programme will take successful applicants through nine core modules, offering funding, legal, IP, accountancy and investor readiness support, as well as modules delivered by ORE Catapult such as technology assessment, supply chain readiness and business case review.

At the end of the 12-week programme, the innovators will demonstrate and pitch their final cleantech solution to the partners. The success of the programme will be measured by the number of innovative businesses securing investment, demonstrators or partnerships with end users.
