Cyclotron Road Gives Energy Startups Time to Grow
Since 2014, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab's startup incubator program, Cyclotron Road, has helped energy researchers survive the "valley of death" that claims many budding ideas in the field. The six projects from the first year collectively raised more than $18 million in additional research funding or private investments. The program will soon welcome its third cohort of innovators.
This year's applicant pool was stellar, making for a highly competitive four-month selection process for our team and reviewers. These ten individuals rose to the top, consistently impressing and inspiring with their vision, commitment and drive.
