CalSEED and FLOW Rocket Fund Information Session
January 31, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 10:45 amFree
Cleantech San Diego and the San Diego Regional Energy Innovation Network invite you to join representatives from California Sustainable Energy Entrepreneur Development (CalSEED) and Caltech’s FLOW Rocket Fund to learn about upcoming opportunities for early-stage clean energy startups to receive non-dilutive seed funding.
CalSEED (managed by the California Clean Energy Fund) is providing $24 million in grants over five years to support innovators working on very early stage clean energy concepts. Awardees can receive up to $150,000 for proof-of-concept activities and have the chance to pitch at a business plan competition for an additional $450,000 in follow-on funding to prototype their technologies.
Caltech’s FLOW Rocket Fund partners with the Emerging Technologies Coordinating Council, a consortium of California utilities, and the Moxie Foundation, to award $10,000 – $75,000 for turning sustainability-related lab innovations into MVPs, ready for testing with customers.
