Not at all. All we ask is for a TRL 3+ technology aligned with our innovation focus areas (i.e., EGS, critical minerals, produced water treatment, and methane management). We offer support for incorporating a company if you are selected for our incubation cohort.

We encourage having a 6-month / 12-month option for a patent over a license. Our IP / legal team will work with you and your university tech transfer team to figure this piece out.

For select innovations, we offer $100k in non-dilutive (grant) support.

Williams, OneOk, HP, and Devon Energy are our energy partners which engage with select innovators to commercialize relevant technologies.

About 12 to 18-months. If selected, we invite you and your team to be a part of a 6-week accelerator program followed by a 1-year remote incubation program to develop aprototype with commercial workflows from our corporates.

We provide you with non-dilutive funding and workflows from the industry to translate lab research into a tangible product/service over a year. Additionally, we offer support for state / federal grant applications, IP, lab-space, and more.

We perform a thorough technical due diligence if there is preliminary alignment with our innovation priorities. We prefer innovations which are TRL 3 or more, have secured federal funding, and have a team of dedicated post-docs / graduates working along side the founder / Principal Investigator.

We only ask for one member from your team to relocate to Tulsa for a minimum of 6 months during the piloting phase to ensure ease of collaboration with our corporate partners who are supporting the pilot.
