The Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator (LACI) is partnering with several organizations on 4C-2016 Seed to Scale, a program aimed at helping to drive innovation in clean technology businesses in Los Angeles.
LACI, which was ranked third by UBI Global on its list of World Top University Associated Business Incubators for 2015, has been a valued partner of California State University, Northridge for two years. During that time, LACI@CSUN has launched six companies. In all, more than 40 companies have been started with LACI, generating more than $60 million in revenue and 700 jobs.
The 4C-2016 Seed to Scale program brings together LACI with the Silicon Valley Innovation Center, Cleantech Open and Prospect Silicon Valley. The U.S. Department of Energy will offer support for the program.
“4C-2016 Seed to Scale is a unique opportunity for those with projects solving clean technology problems specifically focused on transportation, energy, built environment or water,” said Kevin Randolph, LACI’s executive in residence. “We’re happy to meet with those interested and assist in the application process.”
