The Victorian Energy Incubator (VEI) incubates clean energy startups and innovation teams from larger companies, providing collaboration, governance, access to finance, laboratories and workshops. The VEI builds on the Carlton Connect Initiative (now 333x) and Melbourne Accelerator Program’s innovation ecosystem, and on Translating Research at Melbourne (TRaM)’s research translation capability.
The VEI is Australia’s first “industry vertical” deep technology incubator. It will provide long term support, enabling clean energy companies to maximise their opportunity for global success. It will leverage the transition of Australia’s energy sector, supporting the delivery of Victoria’s ambitious renewable energy and emissions goals.
