Cyclotron Road is a partnership between Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Activate, an independent non-profit organization. Since 2015, Berkeley Lab and Activate have supported 56 fellows who have gone on to generate more than $100 million in funding to support their work.

How it works

Every year, we recruit a cohort of entrepreneurial scientists and engineers from around the world. For two years, these innovators are embedded in the Berkeley research ecosystem, where we provide them funding, access to Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley, and a program of intensive mentorship, professional development, and networking. 

Our goal is simple: empower our fellows to mature their ideas from concept to first product, positioning them to align with the most suitable commercial path to bring their technology to scale.
