Attend Pitch Competition For Next Big Thing in Energy Technology
Innovators from eight states – California, Florida, Illinois, New York, Massachusetts, Michigan and Missour – will compete to earn a spot in the second cohort of Argonne’s startup support system Chain Reaction Innovations. Industry experts and investors from the Chicago innovation ecosystem will review 10-minute pitch presentations from the innovators.
Building an energy or materials science technology is difficult. Chain Reaction Innovations (CRI) helps startups do that by providing business planning and technical mentorship, funding, and access to a national lab. CRI embeds innovators for two years in Argonne to conduct early-stage R&D and collaborate with world-leading experts to accelerate the probability of successfully launching businesses in the future.
