Funding the Next Energy Entrepreneurs

Thursday, February 07, 2013 — by Ted Novak

The Task:

Energy Foundry is an impact venture fund with a focus on catalyzing entrepreneurs who are forming the revolution in Illinois energy. To coincide with the launch of their new venture, an online presence was needed.

The Solution:

We helped launch the new initiative online with a tailored CMS, featuring powerful messaging and an immediate call to action for entrepreneurs. With a goal of simplicity and uniqueness, the site educates while establishing an exciting new brand in the marketplace.



“The 2011 Energy Infrastructure Modernization Act authorized a $3.2 billion investment over the next ten years in Illinois electricity infrastructure improvements, including more than $1 billion in smart grid-related investments.”
