Co-founded by CU Boulder professor Mike McGehee, Tynt has raised $8.5 million in seed funding to scale its reversible metal electrodeposition (RME) technology, which is used to create blackout windows that aim to increase home comfort, privacy and energy efficiency.
Otoro Energy, spun out of technology developed in Assistant Professor Michael Marshak's lab at CU Boulder, has received $4.14M from the U.S. Department of Energy to improve the cost, scalability and performance of existing flow battery technology through a metal chelate flow battery system.
In the US, windows are responsible for 12% of the total energy consumed by the existing US residential and commercial buildings due mostly to uncontrolled solar heat gains. Researchers at CU Boulder have developed PV arrays with sliding overhangs to both generate electricity and reduce heating and cooling thermal loads.
Integrated photonics’ major challenge is the efficient coupling of standard optical fiber to on-chip photonics waveguides and devices. Coupling devices must connect vastly different sized modes while preventing loss of light. This adiabatically tapered fibers coupler is unsuspended and obtains low loss over a large optical bandwidth.
Say hello to Licensing Manager Amy Dodenhoff, who's been with the Venture Partners team for two years. Originally from Massachussetts, she received a degree in Mechanical Engineering and a Master's in Entrepreneurship from Brown University before making the jump into patent law.
