The successful candidate will have a roll-up-the-sleeves attitude, is inherently hands-on, and ready to take the next step forward in their career to help us plan and strategize as our programming expands. They thrive in a start-up environment and are self-motivated, solutions-oriented, resourceful, and able to prioritize and multitask.
This position requires a strong background in US GAAP accounting principles and non-profit accounting, experience managing federal government grants, excellent analytical skills, and the ability to work collaboratively with cross-functional teams. Our ideal candidate will bring a solid background in budgeting, financial forecasting, and federal grant compliance.
Who We Are
The Clean Fight is a not-for-profit business accelerator working to significantly speed the growth of the inclusive clean energy economy of New York State and beyond. Our mission is to innovate models of adoption to accelerate the deployment of climate solutions. Given that many of the technologies we need to solve the climate crisis already exist, it’s imperative that we ensure they are adopted quickly, and at scale. To enable this adoption, The Clean Fight creates, runs, and iterates different programs (models of adoption) to identify which can have the greatest impact, at speed.
The Clean Fight currently has two core programs. The accelerator program plays an important role in the New York State innovation ecosystem as the only accelerator focused on growth-stage companies, providing an essential next step for innovative climate companies looking to move from initial deployment to broad market adoption. We help them to quickly scale in NY by providing tailored support, high-touch customer and capital partner matchmaking, and non-dilutive investments to help with demonstration projects and deployments. Each cohort focuses on a different part of the clean energy economy: our practice areas include buildings and energy storage. We’ll be launching a new practice area in Fall 2023.
Our second program, The Empire Technology Prize, is a $10M prize program focused on the development and deployment of leapfrog decarbonization solutions for New York’s tall buildings. Currently in development, The Empire Technology Prize will look to solve one of New York’s thorniest climate problems - reducing the 70% of NYC and 40% of New York State’s greenhouse gas emissions that come from buildings. By focusing the world’s best innovators on this issue, we hope not only to collapse the time to market for these crucial technologies, but to provide a blueprint for other markets in the US and globally to do the same.
We are supported by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA), and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). We are a chapter of New Energy Nexus, an international not-for-profit that strives to achieve a 100% clean energy economy for 100% of the population in the shortest time possible by supporting diverse clean energy entrepreneurs with funds, accelerators, and networks, operating programs in the US, China, India, Southeast Asia, and East Africa.
