Innosphere said it is dedicated to supporting startups that are increasing efficiencies in oilfield operations and reducing the industry's environmental footprint.

"Many of the solutions to these challenges include robotics, automation, software, sensors, cleantech and advanced materials," said Rob Writz, Innosphere's clean tech program director.

"These solutions are in high demand, and Colorado has all the assets in place to support companies developing technologies for the oil-and-gas markets.

"In Colorado, we can invent the technology, test it at leading universities, demonstrate it in the field and obtain first customers."

The new cohort of recruited companies will be divided between startups and high-growth companies, Innosphere said.

Previous companies assisted by Innosphere in the oil-and-gas markets include Avivid Technologies, EcoVapor Recovery Systems, Jemez Technology, OptiEnz Sensors and Solid Power.
