Why Boot Camp Training?
Provide aspiring entrepreneurs an introduction to starting a business, and an overview of what it takes to launch tech companies into the marketplace. The EcoIgnite Program and TechLaunch are partnering to deliver a comprehensive and intensive 2-day Startup Boot Camp. The program will consist of a variety of workshops addressing the Business Model Canvas which is integral in defining any start-up. Emphasis will be on creating an effective pitch deck which communicates the business aspects of the vision as well as generating a Go-to-Marketing strategy to effectively generate revenue. Finally the question must be answered whether or not you have what it takes to be a business owner.
Clean Energy Proof of Concept Center and Accelerator Program was created by the Rutgers EcoComplex, a Clean Energy Innovation Center and Business Incubator. Funding for the program is through the US Department of Commerce, Economic Development Authority which recognized the importance of clean energy business development in the mid-Atlantic Region and Rutgers’ leadership role in research and business development in this field.
The EcoIgnite program will harness a network of new and existing resources to assist clean energy technology companies in successfully maneuvering the innovation pathway that includes discovery, concept assessment, business model assessment, technology verification, scale-up and commercialization. The ultimate goal is to provide a solid support network for clean energy industry growth and to maximize economic development impacts. EcoIgnite will target renewable energy (sustainable biomass, wind, solar, and waste-based energy) and energy efficiency sectors. The EcoIgnite program is led by the Rutgers EcoComplex, located in Columbus, NJ. A Clean Energy Proof of Concept Center and Accelerator Program for pre‐commercial demonstration will be developed to provide technical and business solutions, reduce business and technological barriers, and to bridge the gaps between policy makers and researchers, between researchers and end‐users, and between industry and universities. The benefit to the clean energy sector will be a reduction in the obstacles countered for commercialization of new technology, reduction of the cost and time to successful commercialization, and enhanced regional economic development and technology-based job creation.
The goal of EcoIgnite is to improve economic development in the clean energy sector, providing help to existing companies so they can thrive and creating new start-up companies. As we strive to achieve our goal, specific objectives we want to accomplish along the way include:
