mHUB accelerator programs are supported by industry partners to help shape each cohort’s challenge statements and identify technologies that align with the partner’s innovation priorities. This collaborative relationship provides startups with valuable resources such as pilot opportunities and connections to customers while allowing program partners to de-risk investments in early-stage ideas by working with them through the accelerator.

The mHUB Climate and EnergyTech 2023 Cohort is supported by industry partners Nicor Gas, of Southern Company, and Invenergy. Nicor Gas is engaged in innovation across the value chain to enhance safety, drive affordability, and advance sustainability. Invenergy has been at the forefront of building sustainable solutions for over two decades.

Both program partners share how the mHUB accelerator has given them intimate access to vetting early-stage technologies and the potential opportunities they look forward to building with startup teams.

Nicor Gas:



mHUB is Chicago’s first innovation center for physical product development and manufacturing. mHUB’s members create breakthrough products in robotics, connected devices, sensors, energy tech, unmanned vehicles, and other cutting edge innovations.

mHUB’s community consists of entrepreneurs, manufacturers, investors, mentors, engineers, and designers, as well as education and industry partners. This diversity of backgrounds and perspectives sparks innovation and leads to opportunities for creative collision and collaboration. mHUB values the scrappiness of the maker and the discipline of the manufacturer. Together, we ensure that Chicago’s legacy remains that of a beacon to a region that builds products, and also the future.
