Welcome to RutgersX, the first business accelerator program at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey.
   RutgersX is introducing a new program in 2017!  

   EcoIgnite: Clean Energy Proof of Concept Center and Accelerator Program was created by the Rutgers EcoComplex, a Clean
   Energy Innovation Center and Business Incubator
as part of the RutgersX initiative.  Funding for the program is through the
   US 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 encountered for commercialization of new technology, reduction of the cost and time to successful
   commercialization, and enhanced regional economic development and technology-based job creation.
