Singapore Envirotech Accelerator

Singapore Envirotech Accelerator (SEA), a wholly owned subsidiary of CITIC Envirotech Limited (CEL), was formed to accelerate innovation and commercialization of environmental technologies drawn from intellectual properties (IPs) and research & development (R&D) performed locally and internationally.

Finding markets, establishing track records and funding is a challenge for many of the technology IPs and Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) in Singapore. SEA’s top priority is to commercialize promising cleantech innovations, stemmed from Singapore government’s strong support and investment over the past decades, in Singapore and globally.
