Activate Global

Activate empowers scientists to reinvent our world and address climate change by bringing their research to market. The Activate Fellowship provides the funding, technical support, networking, community, and time that these scientists need at the outset of their entrepreneurial journey. Our team brings a diversity of experience and a deep track record to helping our fellows bridge the science-to-market gap. Activate was founded in 2015 by entrepreneurs, scientists, and investors, and our entrepreneurial fellowship model originated at Cyclotron Road, a division of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and an Activate partner. We support 20-30 new Activate Fellows each year, with plans to support 100 new fellows each year across the U.S. by 2025.
