The Ask

Elemental Excelerator, formerly Energy Excelerator, is a Hawaii based nonprofit that provides funding, design, and development support to startup teams and companies dedicated to making an impact through clean water, energy, agriculture, and transportation systems. They recently entered a partnership with Emerson Collective's Elemental initiative which is focused on balancing the needs of humanity and nature by supporting scalable, equitable, and innovative solutions that strengthen communities. Together they rebranded as Elemental Excelerator, and needed a website that could communicate their mission and manage applications for their two funding tracks, with a quick turnaround before application season began.

The new WordPress site brings to life the spirit of this energetic and inspiring nonprofit while providing essential backend functionality for its users and staff. The client can easily edit and add companies, events, and press releases to engage investors and potential partners alike with the latest information on the innovative technologies EEx supports. Salesforce integrations allow the team to easily collect, organize, and follow up with potential cohort organizations.
