Are you working at the forefront of Australia's Energy Transition with a groundbreaking product or idea?  Unsure how to launch it to users, organisations, and industries? 

The National Energy Transition Accelerator is an 8-week program designed to launch early-stage Australian startups and founders with high-growth potential developing solutions to support the resources technology and critical minerals sectors in the global energy transition.

Led by founder, investor and former venture capitalist Matt Macfarlane, this national program will nurture these ventures from inception to initial revenue and early customer engagement, culminating in a demonstration of their achievements at an industry Demo Day at the end of the program.

Experience the best of both worlds in our dynamic hybrid model, featuring in-person sessions in Western Australia and Queensland. We ease your journey with subsidised travel for all participating teams. Plus, kickstart your venture with a $10,000 equity-free grant, fuelling your initial development phase.
