Elevator 2021: Accelerating the future of green tech start-ups

Applications now closed

Now in its second year, Eulogy’s annual Elevator programme is an accelerator competition enabling early stage ventures to pitch for pro bono support to help move them from start-up to scale-up, whilst accelerating solutions to some of humanity’s greatest challenges. Our Elevator 2021 competition is now open to tech businesses spearheading the green economy.

Elevator 2021: Building a better future

Climate change remains the biggest existential threat to humanity and our planet. The convergence of this long-standing crisis with the global pandemic has created an urgent need to focus on a reimagining of the world as we know it.

The UK’s most promising tech start-ups offer new business models, products and capabilities that can deliver behaviour change and solutions for a more resilient and balanced ecosystem with how we live our lives.

From electric mobility and IoT to AI and carbon capture; technology is already playing a vital role in delivering a more sustainable future, whilst supporting jobs and the UK economy. Yet many of these early stage businesses don’t have the resource or practical support to tell their story or reach their audiences in the right ways to scale their venture; to Be Known for what makes them unique.

Elevator can help to deliver your growth ambitions.

Why apply?

The winner of our Elevator 2021 competition will receive 6-months pro bono marketing, communications & branding support to the value of £30,000, designed to accelerate their growth journey and scale their venture. Five runners-up will each receive our unique Clarity service, Eulogy’s strategic consultancy workshop, designed to provide a communications roadmap to growth
