Pre-Accelerator (TRL 1,2,3) - This program recruits faculty, students (graduate and undergraduate) and researchers from across Maryland, as well as early-stage Maryland businesses, for a 2-month, part-time course. MEIA will match each team with one Energy Executive to form a Startup Team. Each Startup team will perform customer discovery and develop a business model canvas to determine if the market is interested in the technology and to inform product development directions. Positive feedback through this program makes a Startup Team eligible for the MEIA Launchpad.
MEIA is excited to announce that we are accepting applications for the 2022 Climate Tech Pre-Accelerator, sponsored by the Butz foundation and presented with the support of the Maryland Technology Enterprise Institute (Mtech), the Maryland Energy Innovation Institute (MEI2), and the Johns Hopkins University Ralph O’Connor Sustainable Energy Initiative. The program will run from May 31 to July 26. Applications are accepted through April 30th. Click here to get more information and to apply.
