What kind of startups are you looking for?
Innovative, technology-driven companies cross-industry and in all phases of building a business. We value diversity of ideas, so if you are unsure that yours will meet the mark, apply anyway!

Where will I work?
You’ll work from the FPL and NextEra Energy campus in Juno Beach, Florida, which is 90 minutes north of Miami (and three minutes from the beach).

That all sounds great, but what’s behind the name?
In 1925, an unlikely patchwork of enterprises was acquired to form FPL, the precursor to NextEra Energy. They included an ice plant, a sponge fishing boat and exactly 35 mules. Today, NextEra Energy is a world leader in clean energy. It’s how we know first-hand that a small company built around a great idea can change the world.
