Cork start-ups complete Accelerate Green programme

Bord na Mona CEO Tom Donnellan and the 9 Accelerate Green START participants - EVHACS, Airryzen, ReBOT, IFF Plastics, Glowtire, Retrokit, Biota, EVE Mobility and Feighery's Farm Beetroot Juice.

ReBOT and Retrokit, rising green start-ups based in County Cork, have successfully completed Bord na Móna’s Accelerate Green START programme. The programme, delivered in conjunction with Resolve Partners, is dedicated to supporting companies who are leading the response to climate action and sustainability.  

The Cork based companies were two of nine participants in a six-week programme covering key areas including customer discovery, market mapping, network development, the funding ecosystem, preparation for investment and pitching. The programme was delivered through a blend of online and in-person workshops as well as individual mentoring at Bord na Móna’s Accelerate Green Hub, in Boora, Co. Offaly.

ReBOT delivers offshore wind modelling with the use of AI, with Retrokit providing software platforms enabling housing professionals to optimise retrofit planning.

The START programme was established as a sister programme to Bord na Móna’s annual Accelerate Green Programme in order to support earlier stage businesses to scale their sustainable solutions.
