The virtual home of cleantech founders

Now more than ever, entrepreneurs need a strong network of supporters around them. EnergyLab's virtual membership gives cleantech founders the network, knowledge and resources they need to build their business from anywhere in the world, for just $33/month.

Receive the support you need to succeed

Access a wide range of exclusive benefits that are constantly being updated to best meet our members' needs.

A thriving online community

EnergyLab members gain access to an internal Slack workspace used by founders to share useful information, offer assistance, or just lend a sympathetic ear to fellow founders as they rise to meet the challenges of cleantech entrepreneurship.

Weekly member updates

Stay up to date and never miss an opportunity again. Every week we round up the latest news, events, resources and opportunities that cleantech entrepreneurs need to know about, and send it to our members in an easy-to digest-format.

Weekly member meetups

Regular virtual meetups help keep our members kicking networking and professional development goals. We mix it up each week, with meetups ranging from workshops on topics requested by our members to more informal peer-to-peer 'startup shares'.
