About the program

Supporting innovative Lebanese startups with clean technology solutions

Berytech launched the Cleanergy Accelerator Program in 2019 with the support of the Kingdom of The Netherlands to support innovations in clean technology. Because of its impact and success, Cleanergy was renewed in 2022 under the ACT Smart Innovation Hub Initiative and rebranded to Clyntech to be more inclusive of the program’s vertices: waste, water, wastewater, energy and transportation.

Through the Clyntech Accelerator Program, startups receive support to develop their Minimum Viable Product, test it with early adopters, and build their capacity to establish their business from marketing, financial, management and operational levels.

The Clyntech Accelerator Program aims to contribute to job creation and sustainable economic development while advancing the Lebanese entrepreneurial ecosystem.
