Organization Overview

The Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator (LACI) is a private non-profit organization creating an inclusive green economy by unlocking innovation (through working with startups to accelerate the commercialization of clean technologies), transforming markets (through partnerships in transportation, energy and sustainable cities) and enhancing communities (through workforce development, pilots and other programs). Founded as an economic development initiative by the City of Los Angeles and its Department of Water & Power (LADWP), LACI is recognized as one of the most innovative business incubators in the world by UBI. In the past six years, LACI has helped 73 portfolio companies raise $184M in funding, $220M in revenue, create 1,700 jobs, and deliver more than $379M in long term economic value.

The LACI Energy Innovators Program helps clean energy startups in the Santa Barbara, Ventura, Los Angeles, and Orange County regions navigate Southern California’s resources and support network. Through the LACI Energy Innovators Program, LACI leverages its expertise and robust network of partnerships to directly foster the clean energy technologies that will help meet the state’s energy goals and ultimately benefit California ratepayers.
