We are excited to work with Elemental and look forward to collaborating with the high-caliber companies in their ecosystem. Elemental’s dedication to equity and sustainability helps build companies that have a real competitive advantage as they grow.”

Sara Neff
Former SVP, Sustainability at Kilroy

Kilroy has been at the forefront of sustainability in the built environment, and as a result, we get approached by a lot of climate tech startups. However, Elemental's dealflow engine serves as a wonderful de-risking service to identify the best companies for us to directly implement pilots and scale them throughout our portfolio."

Innovation Challenges

What is an Innovation Challenge?

An Innovation Challenge is a tailored pitch event curated to your organizations needs. Through the Innovation Challenge, we craft an application process and event to find the best startups to partner with on your innovation journey.

What makes for a successful & compelling challenge?

We have found that there are two key components to a successful Innovation Challenge. First, you provide the funds to the winning startup(s) and agree to work together, whether it’s a pilot project or an investment. Second, your judges panel includes senior executives who agree to make handshake offers at the end of the pitch event.

“NextEra Energy partnered with Elemental Excelerator to find technologies that can empower Florida in this new era of energy. We were thrilled by the results - over 120 applicants! We even went over our initial budget to award contracts to the finalists because of the high caliber of contestants. Elemental's exceptional dealflow engine makes them a trusted partner for finding great climate tech companies for NextEra Energy. We are happy to recommend them as a challenge host partner and are looking forward to doing this again in 2022.”
