For corporations, we offer the opportunity to develop solutions to meet Net Zero objectives as an extended research arm for new efforts, as a research accelerator for existing projects, and as partners for disruptive technologies.
For startups, we offer resources to complement your existing research operations, develop a pipeline for talent, and provide collaboration opportunities for federal funding.
For venture capital firms, we offer innovative ideas with the potential for commercialization opportunities and consulting services for prospective and existing investments.
For government entities, we offer research expertise and collaborations with national labs.
For philanthropists, we offer an exciting way to make significant contributions toward bettering the environment and improving the world around us.
Through our Affiliates Program, industry and corporate partners have the opportunity to support REINVENTS through the development of solutions for specific research challenges, collaboration with early-stage startups, and engagement with the Department of Energy and other federal agencies.
