Working toward a low carbon future, together.
The Wells Fargo Innovation Incubator (IN2) is a technology incubator for cleantech startups. Co-founded and co-administered by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) since 2014, its results are transformative and catalytic.
Our mission is simple. We work toward a low carbon future by advancing clean and sustainable technologies on their paths to market. And we provide a proven and risk-reduced opportunity for corporate and investor engagement.
World-Class Tech Incubation
Startup companies selected to IN2 receive up to $250,000 in a non-dilutive award to validate their technologies in the world-class laboratories at NREL or the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center.
It’s a model that works. The numbers tell the story.
