Springboard is a proven, structured, yet flexible, business accelerator program. The process lasts approximately three to six months allowing you to fine-tune and steadily improve your business while you run it. Following acceptance into the Springboard Program, the process begins with an orientation where you will learn about the program expectations & milestones and meet your mentor team.

About Mobius: The Thermo-Chemical Method Waste-to-Energy (TCM-WTE) system converts forest waste, municipal solid waste (MSW) and other unsorted carbon waste materials to electrical energy through the production and combustion of a synthetic gas (syngas). The TCM-WTE plant is a self-sustaining loop, requiring only waste to operate and produce electricity, needing outside sources of energy and coal only during initial plant start-up. Along with the energy produced by the plant, the TCM-WTE plant also produces profitable byproducts such as glassy slag for concrete filling or road construction, cast metal alloy goods, and chemical products.
Mobius Springboard Mentors: Ron Pitt, Arun Kumar, and Jim Butler
