Adapting Acceleration Models to Clean Tech in Developing Countries

The Ghana Climate Innovation Center

In Ghana, the World Bank Group is showing that a business development model that grew out of Silicon Valley can be applied to clean technology business incubation in developing countries. A business “accelerator” exercise brought together a cohort of seven competitively selected firms as part of the new Ghana Climate Innovation Center. Lessons learned from this project are being applied across the World Bank’s network of seven Climate Innovation Centers and can provide guidance to any effort supporting innovation of new commercial solutions and businesses that address climate challenges in developing countries.
