Launched in May this year, Greentech Accelerator aims to inject S$150,000 (around US$105,000) into startups that create solutions to help the environment, such as energy efficiency products, zero-waste supply chains, as well as carbon management and reporting software.
So far, all of the participating startups have attended a three-month program, which consists of mentorships from industry experts and introductions to UOB staff and the bank’s partners.
