Inspire’s Cleantech Connect Project aims
to increase the adoption of cleantech by preparing the
next generation for careers in the industry. Our goal is to
connect participants with professionals in the cleantech
space—supplying them with the foundational knowledge
they need for a successful career.

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for future leaders in the cleantech movement to participate in our first ever 6-week Mentorship Program. This means we will be looking for individuals with leadership skills and a passion for cleantech. Participants should be in the early stages of their career—college seniors, recent grads, career switchers, etc.

*Please note that this is a 6-week voluntary (unsalaried) opportunity*

How It Works:

Step 1: Our team will pair you with a cleantech professional for 6 weeks. Throughout these 6 weeks, you will meet with your mentor once per week to discuss specific topical issues that the professional faces in his or her line of work.

Step 2: At the end of the 6 week period you will record and submit a final presentation, which outlines your learnings and thesis for solutions to those topical problems discussed in your informational sessions.

Step 3: Top participants will be selected to present their final presentations at our Symposium—if selected you will have the opportunity to meet with cleantech executives from a wide range of organizations.


Students must be in their final year of their undergraduate degree and display an immense passion for creating a more sustainable world. This program is designed for participants to take control of their own destiny—therefore it is crucial that you are a self starter.

The Cleantech Connect Project is geared towards individuals that are transitioning into the workforce as it relates to cleantech/sustainability. College seniors, graduate students and recent college graduates will be prioritized.
