America's Next Top Energy Innovator Challenge
The America’s Next Top Energy Innovator Challenge, a part of the Startup America initiative, makes it easier for start-ups to use inventions and technology developed at the U.S. Department of Energy’s 17 National Laboratories and the Y-12 National Security Complex.
The companies highlighted below have signed option agreements allowing them to license valuable, cutting-edge technologies from one of the labs.
Check out the profiles of the startups below and cast your vote by 'liking' the company you think could make the greatest contributions to the country’s economic and energy future. You may 'like' more than one company. Your 'likes' will help determine which companies are selected to attend the 2012 ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit, the premier annual gathering of clean energy investors and innovators around the country.
Voting closes Monday, February 6 at 8:59 a.m. EST. So go ahead and get started! For more information, click here.
