Seven start-up companies with technologies ranging from nanogenerators used to charge low-power electronics – to solar power generation, were selected to participate in WERCBench Labs’ third annual Early Stage Startup program this fall. The project of the Midwest Energy Research Consortium (M-WERC) is partially funded by the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC).

“Our third group of start-up companies and cutting-edge technologies is a great complement to dozens of startups that have gone through our program since we launched WERCBench Labs,” said Jacquin Davidson, Managing Director WERCBench Labs. Davidson will lead and coordinate efforts in the program, with Jeff Anthony Chief Operating Office at M-WERC. The program starts Tuesday, August 29 and runs for 12 weeks, concluding with the Demo Day presentations from each team on December 14.
