The EPIcenter Energy Incubator and Accelerator (EEIA) Associate Membership allows energy innovation companies a way to access some of the resources that EPIcenter has to offer, without being a EEIA Client. It is perfect for startups or established businesses that are either already associated with an Incubator, or for those who only desire specific services, as opposed to the more holistic approach taken by joining the EEIA as a Client.
Members can take full advantage of our Associate Membership benefits to help their company grow and excel.

EEIA Clients receive full Incubator services, including Mentors, Subject Matter Experts, guidance through a proven curriculum, access to a vast network of contacts from a variety of industries, and other services. EEIA Clients have submitted a formal application and have been specifically invited to join the Incubator as a Client.
Associate Members of the EEIA can be anyone interested in having access to certain benefits and resources available through the EEIA (but may not need all of them). Or they may be early-stage companies that do not need a full Incubator program but still want to be associated with the EEIA. Click here to see the various benefits of joining as an Associate Member.
No. The Associate Membership is solely a way for energy innovation businesses and entrepreneurs to take advantage of certain services provided by the EPIcenter Energy Incubator and Accelerator. EPIcenter's Power Network members receive different benefits. However, as a benefit of joining as an Associate Member, you receive an Ignition Level ($100 value) membership to the Power Network.

The Associate Membership covers one company.
There is no formal application process. All you need to do is complete this online form to join.
Associate Memberships last 12 months. Please note that Associate Membership dues cannot be pro-rated, and are non-refundable.
Associate membership dues are $1,500 per year.
Membership dues can be paid with credit card or check. Click here to pay online with a credit card. To pay via check, please contact Michael White, Accounting Associate, at firstname.lastname@example.org, for instructions.
While EPIcenter is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, only $95 of the Associate Member Dues are tax-deductible as a result of the Ignition Level Power Network membership. The remaining value of services received as an Associate Member in exchange for the dues is great enough to offset any donative value.
However, there are options to make a fully tax-deductible gift to EPIcenter. For more information, please contact Jill Vassar, Director of Development and Partnerships, at (210) 904-2682 or email@example.com.
