On December 9th, Real NewEnergy (RNE) Founding Partner Joris Benninga traveled to Rotterdam, the Netherlands to pitch the BladeRunner Energy technology and company vision at the 2014 Cleantech Business Day Startup Competition. Needless to say, the judges were impressed leading BladeRunner to earn top honors among the competing startups. The prestige comes with a €10,000 Voucher that will be used to fund the new BladeRunner prototype that is being developed by the Hogeschool van Arnhem en Nijmegen (HAN).

It was a good week for BladeRunner as the team was also accepted into the Climate KIC Accelerator program which will provide valuable coaching, access to Climate KIC in-kind resources and up to €85k in cash funding.

As a result of the traction BladeRunner is developing in Europe, we will be establishing BladeRunner BV in the Netherlands. The team has chosen the Greenhouse Cleantech Incubator in Arnhem for the BladeRunner offices/headquarters in order to work more closely with the HAN team and to take advantage of the excellent services at Greenhouse. RNE will also opening up its new Netherlands office at the Greenhouse Incubator.

2015 should be an exciting year for BladeRunner Energy. Keep checking back for more updates and be sure to follow us on Twitter and LinkedIn!
