Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) Interest Form
The Southern California Energy Innovation Network (SCEIN) is a free program for startups that are developing solutions to help California meet its energy goals. The program provides startup members with customized plans that include access to advisory support, technology commercialization services, and proof-of-concept and pilot testing opportunities.
Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) members aid in the screening of startup applicants for the SCEIN program by participating, when possible, in Entrepreneur Intake Sessions or remotely volunteering feedback and services (ex. pilot projects, referrals) to accepted companies in order to support their success. The Committee is composed of a diverse group of professionals from the private, public, and academic sectors who have domain expertise across the broad scope of technologies that span the evolving energy sector. By expressing an interest in joining the TAC, you are signing up to receive notifications about program highlights and upcoming Entrepreneur Intake Sessions featuring presentations from later-stage SCEIN startup applicants.
This is a volunteer position with no monetary compensation.
