World's First Entrepreneurial Research Fellowship
About Our Program
Cyclotron Road fellows are entrepreneurial scientists and engineers who spend two years embedded in the Berkeley research ecosystem, where we provide them funding, access to Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and UC Berkeley, and a program of intensive mentorship, professional development, and networking.
Our goal is simple: Empower our fellows to mature their ideas from concept to first product, positioning them to align with the most suitable commercial path to bring their technology to scale. Since 2015, we have awarded more than $15 million to 41 fellows who have gone on to generate more than $80 million in funding to support their projects. Each fall, we recruit a new cohort of fellows. Our 2018 Impact Report takes a deep dive into some of the key progress indicators we're tracking and the impact we are making for our fellows.
Our support provides science innovators a pathway for turning their concepts into real-world products that can have profound impacts on industries and resources.
