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.
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.
We are building a low-cost thermal battery for grid-scale energy storage. By combining inexpensive thermal storage media at high temperatures with high-efficiency thermophotovoltaic energy conversion, we will support the widespread integration of renewable resources on the electricity grid.
Sync Computing is a developer of an optimization processing unit designed to eliminate some of society's profound problems. The company's optimization processing unit is an algorithm in hardware form and solves combinatorial optimization problems that exist in industries such as telecom, pharma, finance, logistics, those that rely on machine learning, enabling organizations and communities to solve optimization problems effectively and efficiently.
CalWave Power Technologies provides a solution to harness the renewable power of ocean waves to produce electricity and freshwater. Our technology is a novel Wave Energy Converter (WEC) that is simple and scalable. Our innovative approach was inspired by the ability of a muddy seafloor to effectively absorb over passing ocean waves within only a few wavelengths. Our patented solution operates submerged, allowing it to survive stormy seas while causing no visual pollution or posing any collision danger.
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, 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.
MicroByre is a biotechnology company that specializes in microbiology, synthetic biology, molecular biology, and computational biology. It domesticates and then genetically engineers otherwise reluctant, recalcitrant, and rebellious bacteria. It was founded in 2017 and headquartered in California, United States.
Feasible, a pioneer in advanced battery diagnostics using ultrasound and machine learning, is founded and led by top technologists from Princeton University. After extensive R&D at the university, the company relocated to Northern California, establishing its headquarters in Emeryville, CA in early 2016.
Sepion is an advanced materials company offering a platform suite of highly-tunable nanoscale membranes for multiple industrial markets including batteries, electrowinning, and water treatment. We strive to deliver science-based solutions that create massive economic value while enabling measurable climate change mitigation.
Cypris Materials, Inc. has harnessed the transformative power of structural color—a method of producing color that has evolved over millions of years. Cypris Materials' structural coating platform helps industry-leading companies and individuals redefine the capabilities of color. Our polymers, backed by 11 patents, unlock new colors and effects that can only be achieved through our paint. Cypris’ materials enable a new paradigm: the first safe and sustainable structural color palette, free of all toxic pigments and dyes.
