"Only the most compelling cleantech startup companies are selected to present at NREL's Industry Growth Forum," said Rob Writz, Innosphere's director of clean technology programs at the incubator's cleantech-focused office in Golden at the Colorado Center for Renewable Energy Economic Development (CREED).

"We are very excited to have so many companies presenting at the industry Growth Forum from Innosphere's startup community. It justifies Innosphere's focus on clean technology incubation and continues to show that cleantech is an important industry to our region."

The five presenting companies are Avivid Water Technology, Fabriq, OptiEnz Sensors, PneumatiCoat Technologies LLC and Solid Power LLC.

"We're excited to share the Solid Power opportunity with the cleantech investment community at this year's NREL Industry Growth Forum," said Douglas Campbell, Solid Power CEO.

In addition to possible investment, the best presenters at the event are awarded in-kind commercialization services from NREL. Since 2003, presenting companies have collectively raised more than $5 billion.

"We are always looking for more companies, exciting technologies, sponsors and investors to join our startup ecosystem," said Mike Freeman, Innosphere CEO.
