Elemental Excelerator helps startups change the world, one community at a time.
Elemental Excelerator helps startups change the world, one community at a time. Each year, we find 15-20 companies that best fit our mission and fund each company up to $1 million to improve systems that impact people’s lives: energy, transportation, water, agriculture, and beyond. What makes us unique? We co-fund, co-design, and co-develop projects and strategies that improve infrastructure and sustainably enhance communities. We believe in the power of innovation and people to create transformative change. We work to improve communities through technology innovation, economic opportunity, and sustainable modernization. This is what we call place-based innovation. What does that mean? It means that we look at the challenges of a specific place and then work with the community and startups to solve these challenges in innovative ways.
