The New Energy Incubator and Accelerator (NEIA) Associate Membership allows new energy companies a way to access some of the resources that EPIcenter has to offer, without being a NEIA 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 NEIA as a Client.
Members can take full advantage of our Associate Membership benefits to help their company grow and excel.

NEIA 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. NEIA Clients have submitted a formal application and have been specifically invited to join the Incubator as a Client.
Associate Members of the NEIA can be anyone interested in having access to certain benefits and resources available through the NEIA (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 NEIA. Click here to see the various benefits of joining as an Associate Member.
