Acuicy, the Halifax-based maker of business intelligence software for emissions reduction, is the only Atlantic Canadian company among 11 chosen to participate in this spring’s edition of Techstars Sustainability Paris, a cleantech accelerator from the globally-recognized startup house.

The accelerator began March 11 and will culminate in a demo day June 6. Since its creation two years ago, 60 companies have participated.

The announcement comes just weeks after Acuicy won the cleantech finals of the Atlantic Canada Cleantech Scale-up and Investment Challenge, a startup competition that aims to develop not just new entrepreneurs, but also new angels.

“Acuicy is the first fully automated software to generate tailored low-carbon solutions for each business with clear financial ROI and emissions reductions for a wide range of options,” said Co-Founders Allison Murray and Dawne Skinner in a Techstars statement.

“We do this using deep data and AI and we generate a dashboard so our customers can track progress towards their net-zero goals in real time.”

Murray and Skinner launched Acuicy in 2022 with the aim of aggregating business intelligence data related to greenhouse gas emissions and then using AI to reduce companies’ carbon footprints.

The duo previously worked together at Murray’s sustainability consultancy, Upswing Solutions, helping companies to develop business-wide sustainability and climate change strategies, while Acuicy aims to offer the specific actions needed to reduce emissions.
