NextEnergy, a Detroit-based non-profit dedicated to incubating advanced energy technology, announced last week that it has awarded $10,000 in Advanced Energy Innovation awards to two southeast Michigan companies, Inmatech and Arborlight. The awards were presented last month during the Great Lakes Entrepreneur’s Quest event.

Inmatech, based in Ann Arbor, is a startup focused on developing new batteries for vehicles. The award is expected to help the company further develop its products. Arborlight is also headquartered in Ann Arbor, and the company is developing LED fixtures that deliver next-generation lighting to consumer products across multiple sectors.

Both companies are housed in the Venture Accelerator in the University of Michigan’s Office of Technology Transfer.
