"We are using the funds raised from FuzeHub's $150k commercialization award/investment to rapidly iterate our production process to adapt to COVID and focus on delivery product to our soilless farm customers."

Flextrapower (2018 Awardee)

"FuzeHub has given me the opportunity to explore different manufacturing options within New York and expand our network from New York City to the Capital Region for collaborations. Winning the Commercialization Competition grant not only helped us with funding, but also provided validation that we're adding value to the community."

SparkCharge (2017 Awardee)

“Winning the Commercialization Competition gave us the capital we needed to create new jobs and grow our team. Competing helped connect us to the upstate New York manufacturing industry and further establish our company. Without the mentorship we received from Steve Melito and the support of the FuzeHub ecosystem, SparkCharge wouldn’t be where it is today.”
