March 6th, 2023, Vancouver, British Columbia – Syniad Innovations Inc (“Syniad”) is proud to announce that its portfolio company Anodyne Chemistries (“Anodyne”), has been selected to take part in AWS’ Clean Energy Accelerator 3.0 program. Supporting partners in the program include energy titans EDF and Total Energies, decarbonization partners BlackRock and Temasek, alongside a world-class roster of energy service companies, municipalities, funds, and non-profit organizations.
In its most competitive year to date, Anodyne rose to the top of 465 applications from 64 countries, with advanced cleantech start-ups building clean energy technology solutions. Only 15 companies have been selected to participate in the high-pace, non-dilutive accelerator.
Anodyne will gain exposure to technical, business and go-to-market mentorship from AWS and up to $100,000 in AWS credit through AWS Activate to accelerate their computational enzymology capabilities and operations. With stops in Seattle in April 2023 and wrapping up with an Innovation Showcase at COP28 in Dubai, this year’s program will have expanded reach and scope, with international exchange sprints to foster tech innovation around the world, including one in the UAE in collaboration with Masdar City.
“We are thrilled to have been selected for this outstanding program,” said Manou Davies, CSO of Anodyne Chemistries. “The quality and scale of AWS and their supporting companies, who represent some of the world’s leaders in decarbonization, provides us with an unparalleled opportunity to demonstrate and scale the impact of our high-value, carbon-negative products into global supply chains.”
“This is a truly phenomenal opportunity for the Anodyne team to showcase their innovation on a global platform,” said Iain Evans, CIO at Syniad Innovations. “One of the long-held innovation myths was that for a disruptive innovation to succeed, you have to make incumbents fail. What we’ve seen, however, is that often, by partnering with larger enterprises, deep-tech companies can leverage their experience, resources, infrastructure, and global reach to get to impact and scale much faster than re-inventing the system. Its programs like AWS’ CEA enable industry transformation to occur, and we couldn’t be more excited for the Anodyne team to be part of it.”
