IMPEL+ is a training program that offers pitch workshops to individuals from the national labs, BTO staff, academic faculty, university students, entrepreneurs, and small businesses. These individuals are called “IMPEL Innovators.” The workshops focus on technology-to-market road mapping, as well as effective pitch development and presentation of building technology ideas. The goal is for participants to develop effective methods to communicate the value proposition of their early-stage building technologies R&D to non-technical audiences such as funders and collaborators, and provide networking opportunities to the IMPEL Innovators. Up to 10 high-performing IMPEL Innovators will be selected to present at pitch events and participate in activities managed by the IPO.
