Aula Future is a design academy that focuses on building skills in sustainable, regenerative, and circular design, entrepreneurship, and technology. Our unique challenge-based curricula allow our program participants to work closely with actual companies on real-world issues, create projects that positively impact human and environmental well-being, and gain valuable career opportunities.
Established in 2021, the PGW Energy Innovation Lab provides entrepreneurs with hands-on training, mentoring, and real-time feedback from SBDC business development consultants and PGW energy industry experts, as well as cash stipends of up to $30,000, to advance their innovative business concepts. Proposals are sought from entrepreneurs developing new energy-related technologies, applications, business models, software, services, and/or energy access solutions addressing (1) Energy Efficiency and Conservation; (2) Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emission Reduction; or (3) Energy Affordability and Access.
More information on the program, application process, judges, and timelines is provided in the attached one-pager and on our site at incubator.pgworks.com.
