Contributing to the net zero agenda is an important focus area for the cohorts of the RGU Startup Accelerator.

Drawing upon knowledge and expertise in the schools related to renewables, smart cities, carbon capture and storage, optimisation, predicative maintenance and green buildings, RGU is developing a strong pipeline of potential spin-outs and start-ups. Those graduating from the accelerator programme will have the opportunity to use the campus as a test bed to validate and strengthen their case for entry into complimentary programmes.

One of our recent successes from the programme is Valdone Au. Valdone Auksoriute graduated in Fashion Design from RGU in 2019 and has since developed Valdone Au, a sustainable fashion brand based on key values such as social equality and transparency. Valdone took part in the RGU Startup Accelerator programme, where the initial proposition for the business came to fruition.
