Richi Foundation and ACTION Form New Partnership with Repsol

August 23, 2019

We are excited to announce that the next Richi Childhood Cancer Foundation/Richi Entrepreneurs Boston Immersion Program will be taking place again this year, in two phases, Sept. 30th-October 4th and November 11th -November 22nd. A cohort of 10 European startup companies, 4 cleantech, 5 life science, and 1 environmental health, will be participating in the 2019 edition. ACTION will work as a partner with Richi Entrepreneurs to introduce the companies to its incubator members and organize visits to provide information on how incubators can serve as a first office as they look to build a presence in the US. Member incubator managers have been invited to present their organizations to the startups at the Incubator Overview and Showcase session on October 1st. There will be one incubation award provided to the overall best company at the end of the Boston Immersion program, to be used in the ACTION member incubator of their choice.

This year, Richi Foundation and ACTION Innovation Network entered into a partner agreement with Boston Immersion's newest program sponsor, Repsol, a global energy company headquartered in Madrid, Spain. Repsol is interested in establishing relationships with key cleantech stakeholders in Massachusetts and the New England region, as well as raising their visibility in the region and scouting startups within their strategic investment areas. Over the course of the year, ACTION will provide numerous opportunities for Repsol to engage with relevant startups and the greater cleantech ecosystem.
