Chain Reaction Innovations Demo Day 2018
Four teams from Chain Reaction Innovations Cohort will be showcasing their technologies and emerging companies to potential investors and the energy community. CRI is the Midwest’s first entrepreneurship program to embed innovators in a national laboratory.
Cohort innovator companies include:
- Emergy Labs – Producing Sustainable Protein for a Better World
- Atlas Energy Systems – Solid State Electricity Generation
- FGC Plasma Solutions – Better Combustion, Better Performance
- ClearFlame Engines – Cleaner, More Powerful Engines for Heavy-Duty Applications
Chain Reaction Innovations is a two-year program for entrepreneurs focusing on energy and science technologies. Selected annually through an application call, the program enables innovators to work on their technology full-time, reduce R&D time, and de-risk technologies with the help of leading experts and equipment from a national laboratory. Each cohort works to build their innovations into market-ready businesses. CRI is located at Argonne and supported by area mentors from the Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the University of Chicago and the Purdue Foundry at Purdue University.
Demo Day 2018 also will feature companies from Cohort at Innovation Crossroads, an early stage entrepreneurial fellowship program at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and another of the Lab-Embedded Entrepreneurship Programs (LEEP) from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE). EERE created the Lab-Embedded Entrepreneurship Programs to provide an institutional home for innovative postdoctoral researchers to build their research into products and train to be entrepreneurs. The two-year program is funded by EERE’s Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO).
