BRITE People

Founded in 2012 as the state’s only energy incubator, BRITE exists to support entrepreneurs and startup companies in the energy sector.  But while our mission is regional, our reach is nationwide! We have attracted companies from Arizona, California, and Texas to the Mahoning Valley. These bright young minds bring innovative solutions to our community while creating new jobs and investment to ensure our children have a BRITE future right here at home. 

We want YOU to be a part of the excitement. We rely on public and private funding to advance that mission and make it successful. We are currently seeking donations from the community to help support our annual campaign. 

BRITE is a certified 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Our legal name is Tech Belt Energy Innovation Center but we do business as (DBA) BRITE Energy Innovators. Our federally-issued Employer Identification Number (EIN) is 27-2660738. You can use this number and our legal name to verify our status as a nonprofit organization here:
