About the Organization

Our mission is to build a diverse cohort of startups from across the sustainable infrastructure / built environment industry that have demonstrated commercial traction in terms of revenue and the potential to scale. The core goal of this AWS Sustainable Cities Accelerator is to help mature startups accelerate their impact, access additional resources, and expand their reach.

About the Fellowship

Cities occupy just 3% percent of the Earth’s land but account for 75% of carbon emissions. With the urban population expected to grow 1.5X to 6 billion people by 2045, developing sustainable cities is a crucial component of the fight against climate change. — UN Sustainable Development Goals #11

Responding to this global crisis will require innovation and collaboration across industries, governments, startups, and global corporations. From energy transformation to mobility & transportation to the built world to the circular economy—clean tech investment and innovation is surging. With this demand comes a rapid proliferation of startups working to solve today’s biggest sustainability challenges.

We designed the AWS Sustainable Cities Accelerator for mature startups and emerging companies looking to drive commercial and technical milestones. By leveraging cutting-edge technologies and growth acceleration from Amazon Web Services (AWS) and our partners in support of scaling solutions to support sustainable cities, we aim to achieve these successes in a rapid manner. Sustainable Infrastructure / Built Environment is the second cohort of 2022 for the AWS Sustainable Cities Accelerator.

  • Collaboration opportunities with AWS Public Sector customers and members of the AWS Partner Network
