The RVIC Clean Energy Program offers an emerging technologies business incubation/acceleration environment for the commercialization of clean energy technologies. Known as the Texas A&M Clean Energy Incubator (TAMCEI), the program is a joint effort of Texas A&M University/TEES and the RVP. TAMCEI offers members the potential to access Texas A&M resources and facilities across the state and serves as a portal for partnering with Texas A&M researchers, intellectual property development commercialization and product testing needs. Additional service network partners are available from the private sector.
The program is supported through grants with the Texas State Energy Conservation Office (SECO) and the Austin Technology Incubator’s Southwest Clean Energy Incubator Initiative funded through a United States Department of Energy National Incubator Initiative for Clean Energy Grant. Mrs. Terry Chase Hazell serves as Clean Energy Entrepreneur-In-Residence and, along with other RVP/RVIC staff, provides program and member advisory services.
The RVIC Garage is an open innovation, co-working space where emerging technology companies in the Research Valley connect with community and university innovators and entrepreneurs.
RVIC’s General Technology Program is designed to support startups and early stage companies across a wide range of new technology innovations and services including software and systems, advanced materials, Big Data solutions, nanotechnology, aerospace and telecommunications industries. We identify and match our client companies to mentors and collaborating partners to provide research, problem-solving and resources.
