The Centre for Social Innovation (CSI) in Toronto has launched the Cleantech Fellowship to support entrepreneurs building businesses in the cleantech sector.

CSI said the program, which is part accelerator and part fellowship, will provide up to 20 entrepreneurs with workspace, coaching, advisory services, impact measurement support, and connections with leaders and investors in the cleantech sector.

“Ontario is a leader in cleantech startups that employ approximately 130,000 people and are an integral part of building a more resilient, low-carbon economy,” said CSI’s Director of Programs Barnabe Geis. “Working in everything from farming to transportation, these entrepreneurs are reducing pollution and improving the health and safety of communities across the province.”

CSI said the cleantech startups will work out of the centre’s Climate Ventures space at 192 Spadina, which is set to open in September. Interested entrepreneurs have until June 22 to apply to the fellowship.
