Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership - Innovators for the built environment
We are looking for the most innovative business minds with potential solutions to help unlock transformative change in one of the most resource intensive, greenhouse gas emitting and least diverse industries on the planet: the building industry.
This Accelerator aims to fast-track companies who are commercialising novel products and services in the built environment space. There is no fee and we do not take equity.

Key dates: Applications close 6 April. The programme will run from 19 April – 28 May, with an optional session in June.
