Save the Date! Chain Reaction Innovations, the Entrepreneurship Program at Argonne National Laboratory, will hold a first ever Lab-Embedded Entrepreneurship Program (LEEP) Summit on July 12, 2022. Check out the LEEP Summit info page.
This event will showcase the LEEP nodes at Argonne, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
We plan to hold an in-person event, observing appropriate covid guidelines that may be in place at that time.
Chain Reaction Innovations’ Cohort 4 will participate. They include:
Startups participating from Innovation Crossroads and Cyclotron Road will be announced soon.
About Chain Reaction Innovations
Chain Reaction Innovations is a two-year program for entrepreneurs focusing on energy and science technologies. Selected annually through an application call, the program enables innovators to work on their technology full-time, reduce R&D time, and de-risk technologies with the help of leading experts and equipment from a national laboratory. Each cohort works to build their innovations into market-ready businesses. CRI is located at Argonne and supported by area mentors from the Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the University of Chicago, mHUB and others in the innovation ecosystem.
Chain Reaction Innovations is part of the Lab-Embedded Entrepreneurship Programs from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE). EERE created the Lab-Embedded Entrepreneurship Programs to provide an institutional home for innovative postdoctoral researchers to build their research into products and train to be entrepreneurs. The program is funded by EERE’s Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO).
