While Southeast Asia is home to several startup incubators and accelerators, Nexus SEA is the first full-spectrum programme dedicated specifically to smart energy software and business development.
Nexus SEA will catalyse energy entrepreneurs by providing business, technology, and financial support to new ideas and young enterprises. Nexus SEA uses the strong network and experience of its partners GIZ and The California Clean Energy Fund (CalCEF) as well as the partnering incubators, accelerators and venture capitalists in the region to help build an ecosystem conducive to promoting clean energy entrepreneurs in the region. Nexus SEA will provide fertile ground for scalable smart energy software and business solutions and the formation of startups to bring these solutions to the market. The startups will entail disruption potential and regional ownership to enable the energy transition in Southeast Asia.
GIZ is kick-funding this strategic initiative and seeks to provide an opportunity to like-minded organisations to become funding partners and grow the initiative further.
Remark: 356,900 USD budget covers only Indonesia
