Amy Stursberg
Executive Director

We are proud to have partnered with Village Capital for their Energy: US 2016 accelerator program. The nine early stage entrepreneurs that were part of this program demonstrated great potential to address energy inefficiencies around the world.

Village Capital

We enable companies to build resilient cities, rural areas, and a resilient economy.

Jeff Lynch
Founder and President
Idle Smart

The Village Capital model is unique in that it asks its participants to make peer-selected investments in other companies in the cohort. As a result, we spent a lot of time getting to know each other’s business and giving near-constant feedback on every aspect of their business model, assumptions and investment readiness. These are smart people who run their own businesses in our industry and so, however painful it was to hear, we benefitted from their feedback, particularly since we may not get specific and actionable feedback from potential investors. While we never thought we ‘had time’ for an accelerator, it turns out to have been one of the best things we’ve done for Idle Smart.
