A New Mechanism to Fund Hardtech Innovation

A white paper funded by the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Energy Technologies Office

Cyclotron Road and similar programs provide science-entrepreneurs vital resources to turn research into first prototypes. But in order to make these startups attractive investments to industry and financiers, a new, data-driven approach is needed.

Toward that end, we have created a white paper, along with accompanying datasets and models, that describes this approach. If you have feedback on this report, contact our investment director Robert Ethier: robert [at] cyclotronroad [dot] org

Our thanks to the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Energy Technologies Office for making this possible.
