Innovation. Validation. Commercialization.
The Wells Fargo Innovation Incubator (IN2) is the proven model for assisting clean technology and agriculture companies to accelerate their paths to market. These start-up companies create products with tremendous potential to positively impact energy use and the environment, but need technology validation to attract the investment community. Enter IN2.
Funded by the Wells Fargo Foundation, IN2 harnesses the world-class expertise and facilities of the U.S. Department of Energy National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center (Danforth Center). IN2-selected companies receive $250,000 non-dilutive grants to validate their technologies at NREL or the Danforth Center and secure the priceless benefit of business connections across the entire IN2 network.
