Entrepreneurship Program at Argonne National Laboratory Opens Applications for Startups – Business Wire

LEMONT, Ill.–()–Chain Reaction Innovations (CRI), the entrepreneurship program at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory, is now accepting applications for its Cohort 7. Entrepreneurs with clean energy and climate technology innovations who can leverage Argonne’s resources are encouraged to apply.

CRI propels the next generation of energy entrepreneurs by helping them move their innovations to market. A new cohort is selected each year through an annual call for applications. This year, the application period is open through 5 p.m. Central on November 30, 2022. Those chosen for Cohort 7 will begin work in summer 2023.

“CRI helps startups bridge the gap between an early-stage technology and a viable business,” says Dick Co, CRI’s director. “This year, especially, we invite potential innovators who have climatech solutions in both decarbonization and adaptation like water tech to apply to the program. Working together, we can address the near- and long-term effects of climate change, while supporting innovation and job creation today.” Since its inaugural cohort graduated in 2019, CRI startups have created 585 jobs while raising over $371 million in funding.
