SUCool started a partnership with the Netherlands-based Innoenergy to provide assistance ot early-stage entrepreneurs and startups ready for global growth in the Energy and Clean Technologies sectors in 2018. In association with Innoenergy, SUCool will organize global programs in 2018, beginning with the PRIMER Acceleration Program for entrepreneurs with business ideas on early-stage energy, clean environment technologies, intelligent transportation, sustainability, and mobility. 

As part of the PRIMER program, entrepreneurs will have access to theoretical and applied trainings delivered by energy professionals, mentorship and advisory services offered by executives of energy companies, and opportunities to access initial customers, attract foreign investment, and join a global business network.
