Cuberg is commercializing a next-generation battery to power the future of electric mobility. The battery delivers a generational improvement in energy density and safety compared to the best lithium-ion batteries in the world today. The technology, based on a groundbreaking non-flammable liquid electrolyte combined with a lithium metal anode, fully leverages the robust lithium-ion manufacturing base to minimize time to market. Cuberg's product is ideally suited to power the next generation of electric vehicles on the ground and in the air.
Developer of carbon dioxide recycling devices designed to turn CO₂ into cost-competitive chemicals and fuels. The company's devices make products from recycled emissions and renewable electrons, enabling industries to reduce the carbon footprint while creating a new revenue stream from waste products.
Sublime Systems develops technology to decarbonize cement, currently responsible for 8% global CO2 emissions. Our technology reduces cement’s emissions by 50-100%, while co-producing green hydrogen. We are an early-stage company spun out of MIT’s Department of Materials Science, supported by Activate Boston and Prime Coalition. We are looking for the very best people to join us in our mission to disrupt the world's biggest industrial polluter.
Resonant Link's breakthrough coil technology shatters the fundamental barriers of wireless charging, increasing performance by 5x while decreasing cost by 10x over conventional litz-based coils. These novel coils increase the range, power, and efficiency of wireless chargers while simultaneously reducing the size, weight, and cost. Our technology fundamentally changes the value of wireless charging in all applications, with proven gains from medical devices to consumer electronics to electric vehicles.

Gradient’s mission is to cool the world by transforming every home to be more comfortable and healthy for the people who inhabit it — without compromising the environment. Today, heating and cooling equipment emits more greenhouse gas emissions than the entire transportation sector, and expansion in the use of cooling is projected to double these emissions in the next 30 years. However, comfortable buildings are critical for health and productivity, especially among communities that are vulnerable to the effects of climate change. Gradient’s vision is a future where everyone has access to comfortable buildings that are fully decarbonized. Our launch product is a direct-to-consumer high-efficiency and low-carbon heat pump.
polySpectra is an advanced materials company on a mission to transform 3D printing from a prototyping aid into a production manufacturing tool. Our modular chemical platform unlocks additive polymers with a broad spectrum of tailored engineering properties. polySpectra was founded by Dr. Raymond Weitekamp at Cyclotron Road, the groundbreaking hard technology innovation program based at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, and has been supported by the Advanced Manufacturing Office, the National Science Foundation and the Molecular Foundry. Based in Berkeley, California, polySpectra helps inventors, designers and engineers make their ideas real.
Cypris Materials is developing a new generation of sustainable color that broadens the color gamut while simplifying manufacturing, application and formulation.
Anthro Energy is pioneering highly robust, pliable batteries made of advanced polymers. With unmatched safety and mechanical properties, the batteries could usher in a new era of flexible electronics, allowing power to be stored in wasted space such as wristbands, watch straps, and even the walls of cars and aircraft.
CalWave is bringing superior power generating technology to market with global reach. Our proprietary wave energy converter technology achieves high performance while surviving storms and extreme conditions. Ocean waves are 20-60 times more energy-dense, predictable, and consistent compared to other forms of renewable energy. They are available at night and during winters. CalWave's patented technology converts this energy to electricity, equipping coastal communities with clean, reliable and local energy while keeping our planet and the health of future generations in mind.
Activate empowers scientists to reinvent our world and address climate change by bringing their research to market. The Activate Fellowship provides the funding, technical support, networking, community, and time that these scientists need at the outset of their entrepreneurial journey. Our team brings a diversity of experience and a deep track record to helping our fellows bridge the science-to-market gap. We support up to 40 new Activate Fellows each year through communities in Berkeley, Boston, Houston, New York, and across the U.S. through Activate Anywhere. By 2025, we plan to support 100 new fellows each year. Activate was founded in 2015 by entrepreneurs, scientists, and investors, and our entrepreneurial fellowship model originated at Cyclotron Road, a division of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and an Activate partner.
Brimstone is a developer of a novel process intended to produce carbon-negative Portland cement and supplementary cementitious materials. The company provides a cost-effective process for converting waste sulfur into green hydrogen and sulfuric acid, enabling users to replace conventional processes with a cost-effective and clean electrochemical system.
Osmoses is a membrane start-up aiming to transform industrial chemical separations with innovative molecular filters.
