About

VertueLab is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with a mission to unleash innovation and entrepreneurship that will solve environmental challenges and catalyze shared economic prosperity. We unleash innovation by providing the critical funding for cleantech startups where traditional investing fails to invest because of the high risk. We solve environmental challenges by providing holistic entrepreneurial support to cleantech startups so they are more likely to reach commercial scale. We catalyze shared economic prosperity by dismantling barriers to prosperity for underserved communities. VertueLab can also help innovators in the Pacific Northwest pursuing federal SBIR/STTR grants, regardless of technology type. We can help with identifying which agency is the best fit, proposal preparation, and submission – all for free.
