Work With Us

The Innovation and Entrepreneurship Center works to bring viable cleantech innovations to market.

It takes an ecosystem—cleantech startups; investors; corporate and industry partners; foundations; and incubators, accelerators, and universities leveraging the capabilities at NREL and other national labs. The good news: We're growing and invite you contact us.

Cleantech Startups

We will put you in touch with our ecosystem—starting with our Channel Partners in your region or area of specialty. They can help with referrals to our incubators and accelerators. Seeking capital? We can send you updates on funding opportunities and resources as well as connect you with opportunities to present. Contact Monali Mujumdar


We can share information about our portfolios, our Investor Advisory Board and investment community, emerging clean technologies, and NREL. Contact Danielle France.

Partners and Foundations

Learn more about our portfolio of startups and the opportunity to customize a cleantech solution to help meet your sustainability goals and execute your strategy. We can also help you with insights into new solutions and opportunities to show leadership in the space. In addition, reach out to us to learn about opportunities to craft your own cleantech solutions for impact. We can create cohorts, programs, and events to address specific impact areas of importance to you. Contact Kate Moore.

Incubators, Accelerators, and Universities

We have a network of 60-plus incubators, accelerators, and universities that we work with in support of our programs. These close relationships allow us to connect other partners and startups with the support they need. Interested in joining our network? Contact Catherine Dolezal.
