Partners

IN2 is more than an incubator. We comprise an entire ecosystem of industry, technology, and market experts – our Channel Partners and advisory boards.

Channel Partners

The IN2 Channel Partners are an ecosystem of more than 60 cleantech, agtech, and sustainability focused incubators, accelerators, and universities that serve as an innovation pipeline by referring start-up companies to the program.

IN2 relies on these critical partners to send their best and brightest portfolio companies to apply to the program when each cohort application round is announced. Additionally, Channel Partners participate in the program by receiving competitive and non-competitive grants to grow and improve the cleantech ecosystem in their regions.

Companies that apply go through selection rounds with NREL or Danforth Center researchers, the Wells Fargo Board of Directors, and the IN2 External Advisory Boards – our industry experts.

ADVISORY BOARDS


The external advisory boards play a significant role in the IN2 program as they ultimately determine the companies accepted into the program. They provide insights and expertise in sector trends, challenges, and opportunities and some technical understanding around technologies, both traditional and emerging.
