VIA is proud to join the inaugural cohort of the GreenTech National Funding Lab. Considered a highly competitive program, VIA was one of only ten companies chosen from across the country to form the inaugural cohort.
GreenTech National Funding Lab is the latest program to be launched by OK Catalyst, an office out of the University of Oklahoma, which assists in identifying opportunities to work with several participating Federal agencies including the Department of Defense (DOD), NASA, Department of Energy (DOE), and National Science Foundation (NSF).
Support from GreenTech National Funding Lab will accelerate VIA’s focus on delivering clean energy solutions to the Southeastern U.S. including, Oklahoma, Mississippi, and Georgia.
“Oklahoma in particular is a leader in clean energy generation technologies and forward thinking when it comes to data privacy issues,” said Joe Babiec, SVP Strategic Initiatives at VIA. He continued, “We’re thrilled that OK Catalyst has opened its doors for the first time to companies outside of Oklahoma to join one of their highly successful programs. We feel that VIA’s core technology will have immense value to support this community in their clean energy and data privacy goals.”
Though VIA’s participation in the GreenTech National Funding Lab is just getting underway, VIA has already identified a Web3 energy initiative within the state of Oklahoma. VIA envisions this application of the company’s blockchain technology as the first of many good things to come from its partnership with OK Catalyst and the GreenTech National Funding Lab.
