Chain Reaction Innovations, the Entrepreneurship Program at Argonne National Laboratory, will host a virtual Demo Day 2020 on September 15.
Five teams from Chain Reaction Innovations Cohort 3 and additional teams from our sister programs, Innovation Crossroads at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Cyclotron Road at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, will showcase their technologies and emerging companies to potential investors and the energy community.
CRI is the Midwest’s first entrepreneurship program to embed innovators in a national laboratory.
In accordance with state guidelines, this event will be virtual. For an invitation to the event or to be added to our e-mail list, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cohort 3 CRI innovator companies include:
Dielectic Materials for Capacitive Energy Storage
Nanocomposites for Elevated Temperature Hydrogen Technologies
Quantum Dot Sensors & Displays
Water Treatment Sorbents
Biosensors for Public Health Applications
Check out highlights from CRI’s Demo Day 2019.
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 the Purdue Foundry at Purdue University.
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).
