PeaPod Homes LLC, a newly established company in the Door County Business Development Center, was recently named as one of 29 semifinalists in the MIT Enterprise Forum “Ignite Clean Energy” Competition. The competition is one of many events produced by the Energy Special Interest Group (Energy SIG) of the MIT Enterprise Forum. The goal of the Energy SIG is to help build the clean energy industry cluster by assisting entrepreneurs in the creation and deployment of startup companies providing any product or service that reduces the demand for fossil fuels. The finals of the competition are to be held in May.
“We are very excited about this recognition because the East Coast will be a very valuable market for us,” said PeaPod Homes co-founder Van Krzywicki. “By integrating multiple energy saving steps into a performance-engineered core package and launching the right product at the right time, we project gross annual revenue over $30 million dollars within five years.”
PeaPod Homes officially launched their product March 12 at the Northeast Sustainable Energy Association Expo in Boston. The company also participated in the prestigious MIT Clean Energy Entrepreneurship Prize competition and in the Hudson Valley Green Fair in Rhinebeck, NY.
