Activation Energy empowers hard science innovators by creating homes for their work, catalyzing commercialization through new programs and partnerships, and connecting the pillars of the hard tech community to enable successful transitions from lab to market.
Activation Energy partners with world-class research institutions to support and expand programs for hard tech innovators.
In one of its first moves to enhance the hard tech innovation ecosystem, Activation Energy is partnering with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory to support its groundbreaking Cyclotron Road program. Cyclotron Road recruits the brightest science and engineering minds from across the country and embeds them at Berkeley Lab to launch new energy technology startup companies. Activation Energy offers these innovators essential strategic guidance and services, educational programming, and access to a tailored network of hard tech mentors and advisers.
By accessing the scientific resources of Berkeley Lab and the business resources of Activation Energy, Cyclotron Road innovators can dramatically accelerate the commercialization of their hard tech energy innovations.
