ENEOS Accelerator ProgramProgram Guidelines

We apologize for the inconvenience caused to all applicants of the ENEOS Accelerator Program due to the discovery that some applications were not registered in our system. We understand the frustration and disappointment that this may have caused.

Please send any inquiries regarding the program application through this form.

Once again, we offer our sincere apologies to all applicants who were affected by this problem.
We appreciate your understanding and patience during this time.

The ENEOS Accelerator Program welcomes ideas from a wide range of startup companies to realize the long-term vision of the ENEOS Group and searches for partners that can promote co-creation activities. For this reason, we create an environment that facilitates applications throughout the year and review all applications. For selected projects, we will review hands-on partnerships, including PoC, investment, and dispatch personnel, and make the final decision on the partnership.
