Alumni Experiences

Accelerate Green’s unique structure and deeply experienced mentors bring participants together
in an environment that prioritises collaboration over competition
to create a supportive environment for business growth.

“Through the process, we really changed our business model to something far more robust than just product alone and that is absolutely down to the Accelerate Green programme and the work Resolve Partners did with us.”

Mary O’Riordan, Founder, HaPPE Earth

“The cohort knowledge share was excellent.  We were lucky to have a very engaged and engaging group.  The 2 day overnight format is definitely a winner.  One day, although less time consuming from a work/company perspective, would not be as impactful.”

Joh O’Connell, CEO, CW Applied

“The one-to-ones with the mentors were really excellent and it was great to get their time.”

Denise Kelly, CEO, Hub360

“One of the key benefits of the Accelerate Green programme is that it is a small, close knit cohort and that the status, problems, and developments are clearly understood”

Mike Keane, CEO, Hibra

” Speakers and networking opportunities were excellent.”

John Dillion, VP of Marketing, Superfy

Programme Modules

‘The general networking from all aspects of the program is one of the highlights. The interesting non-speaker folks invited to come along to the social events is also good and creates interesting conversations and view points.’

‘The casual networking dinner with investors was excellent. Even if they are not an investor for us, it’s good to get into that circle in a casual way.’

Layered Support

“The involvement of Bord Na Móna was very good and the value of the Accelerate Green programme to Bord na Móna was clearly shown. For me personally, Elaine was an excellent advocate and an excellent help in making introductions with the right people. 

I found that being in a strategic frame of mind for 2 days created a different flow of thoughts. I had a few eureka moments that were not necessarily directly related to the workshop I was in.”

— Mike Keane, CEO, Hibra
