Where breakthrough energy technologies are born
Developing energy technologies isn't easy. It involves tough science, long validation cycles, and brutal economics. Creating options for our energy future depends on serious researchers - those with the skills and creativity to reinvent our physical world, and the drive to bring their technologies to market.
Cyclotron Road is a home for top entrepreneurial researchers to advance technologies until they can succeed beyond the research lab. Our purpose: support critical technology development and help identify the most suitable business models, partners, and financing mechanisms for long-term impact.
In an era of declining investment in early-stage energy technologies, our best and brightest are at risk of turning their efforts away from pursuit of groundbreaking energy solutions. In order to reinvigorate innovation, engage our top minds, and accelerate the commercialization of these essential technologies, we’re testing a new model for energy R&D.
