Acomni: Winner of I-Corps "Best Team" award in 2012

Jonathan Sprinkle (left), Xiao Qin, Susan Lysecky, and Manny Teran are gearing up to produce a thermostat that enables homeowners to balance heating and cooling costs with comfort.

In 2012, our company was barely an idea, but the idea was a strong one. Acomni was founded in 2012 as part of a National Science Foundation (NSF) project called I-Corps (short for "Innovation Corps"), and our group was 27 teams who matured our ideas into something marketable. Out of those 27 teams, we were selected as "Best Team" by the NSF project leaders. For more on this part of our company history, check out this article from the University of Arizona's press team.
