The Fall 2015 VentureWell ASPIRE program gathered ten science and engineering-based startups in the cleantech sector from around the world that are actively raising capital, have initial validation of product-market fit, and have tested business model hypotheses. Learn more about the teams participating in the cleantech-focused ASPIRE workshop held at Greentown Labs.
Using shock waves to generate off-grid power with radically low emissions.
Makes green building materials from architects’ BIM models, reducing project labor costs and increasing construction efficiency.
Nanotechnology to enable safer, longer-lasting batteries.
Developing genetically improved tree seedlings to tree farmers, so that they increase revenue with increased wood density, resulting in high biomass material for conversion into bioenergy.
Cyber Security for sensor networks in advanced manufacturing.
Utilizes electrical impedance measurements of structures to assess structural integrity, including (but not limited to) crack propagation, global and local vibration properties, and corrosion effects.
Develops water treatment systems for the removal of contaminants from water for applications geared towards residential, commercial and industrial scales.
Developing a clean, ceramic membrane filtration technology that can physically separate oil and organic contaminants from water, unlike currently used solutions such as chemical treatment.
Multispectral infrared imaging technology for detection & quantification of natural gas leaks. Products will include hand-held portable inspection camera, rail-mounted (fixed location) imaging leak sensor, truck-mounted and UAV borne on-the-move leak sensor systems.
Offers industrial equipment manufacturers a cloud-based solution to track a product’s sensor, location, and static data in real-time. Enabling manufacturers and their supply chain partners to have complete visibility into a product’s operational status, improving service contracts and generating new sales opportunities.
