TWO start-ups from the North-east are to benefit from an innovative accelerator to help lead the charge for sustainable mobility and low carbon energy.

Frisco Projects and Power to Go Hydro Ltd have been selected for the programme launched earlier this year by the Michelin Scotland Innovation Parc (MSIP) – a joint venture between Dundee City Council, Michelin, and Scottish Enterprise. MSIP appointed Elevator to deliver the programme with an aim to support Scotland’s net-zero carbon ambitions.

The MSIP Sustainable Mobility and Low Carbon Innovation Accelerator will coach the cohort of companies and individuals who have developed products, prototypes, or investor-ready solutions focused on sustainable mobility, clean transport, and low carbon energy.

As part of the programme, each founder will work closely with specialist sector delivery partners Ricardo and Productiv to gain industry insight and hands-on experience to break into production and to market. In addition, companies can apply for a grant of a maximum of £10,000 through a funding support package managed by Scottish Enterprise.

Bob Andrew, Elevator’s MSIP Accelerator Manager, said: “The selected start-ups address a wide range of social and environmental challenges and are working towards solutions to help support Scotland’s response to the global climate emergency.

“We are enormously excited about having this opportunity to work alongside MSIP and Scottish Enterprise to achieve our collective objective of bolstering zero-emission transport and zero-carbon energy emission technologies. We are confident we will deliver huge benefits to sustainable mobility and low carbon energy companies that are ready to scale and grow.”
