DOE is seeking to partner with leading Venture Capital firms in a pilot program to develop robust Entrepreneur in Residence projects at three of DOE's national laboratories—the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratory, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The projects will identify and develop business cases to commercialize promising laboratory technology. Start-up entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to work directly with national laboratories to identify technologies that contribute to DOE's mission.

Successful applicants will conduct technology assessments, identify market opportunities, formulate preliminary business cases, and propose business structures for start-up enterprises. Applicants will also recommend policy and business practice modifications to the national laboratories to further refine their approaches to moving technology into the commercial sector.
