FORT COLLINS -- Technology incubator Innosphere announced that Advanced Energy, a design and manufacturing company of highly-engineered precision power, measurement, and control solutions, will join the incubator’s Corporate Partner program.
Corporate partners are given exclusive opportunities to explore strategic partnership with Innosphere’s portfolio companies, as well as gain access to leading-edge technology and thought leaders at Colorado's research universities.
“Established companies need to actively source ideas from inside and outside their organization if they want to succeed at innovation, and that’s where our Corporate Partner Program plays an important role,” said Mike Freeman, Innosphere CEO.
“The relationships between our client companies and corporates are formed to be mutually beneficial. Innosphere engages with corporate partners to further our mission of accelerating the growth of science and technology startup and scaleup companies in Colorado.”
Fort Collins-based Advanced Energy (AE) transforms how power is used, delivered, and managed by some of the world’s leading semiconductor and industrial manufacturers.
“As AE is dedicated to fostering innovation and entrepreneurship -- not just in Northern Colorado but the state as a whole -- renewing our partnership with Innosphere was a natural decision,” said Isabel Yang, Advanced Energy’s chief technology officer.
“We look forward to furthering our support by engaging with Innosphere’s client companies and local academic research organizations to help bring new transformative and leading power technologies to the market.”
As Innosphere continues to expand its partnerships with the three research universities: Colorado State University, University of Colorado, and Colorado School of Mines, there will be additional energy and advanced material companies entering the incubation program.
“Established, innovative companies know it’s important to understand what universities are thinking, so that they have a better perspective on what the next technological or scientific breakthrough may be in their industry,” said Freeman.
