Our fellow entrepreneurs in the Accel-VT 2019 Energy Cohort selected Onboard to receive the program’s grand prize of $25,000. Accel-VT invites startup or seed stage ventures from Vermont, around the U.S. and Canada to apply for this climate economy business accelerator. Participants are guided through the world-class VIRAL™ accelerator curriculum, developed by Village Capital, designed to test assumptions, expose and remediate business vulnerabilities, prepare for significant investment, and provide a platform for rapid scale.
Onboard received a $200,000 award from the U.S. Department of Energy for our work towards Automated Classification & Validation of Building Data from commercial buildings. This research advances the scalability of our building analytics solution by making it easier to apply our software on top of messy facility information. Onboard was the only recipient of this award for this ‘smart building’ topic!
Onboard was 1 of 7 companies to receive a $65,000 Massachusetts Catalyst Award. The Catalyst Program is jointly administered by the MassCEC and the Massachusetts Technology Transfer Center with the primary intent of stimulating the commercialization of clean energy and water innovation technologies developed in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
