We are searching for a startup that will change the future of energy.

SixLab is a global incubator for startups that provides access to exclusive resources, mentorship, facilities, and tools. While we collaborate with many kinds of startups, if your work is specific to the oil and gas industry then you are eligible to take your startup to the next level by joining SixLab’s Pilot Program.

The Pilot Program

We believe that work in the energy industry is ever-evolving, and that by fostering innovative startups we can alter the course of work in energy, oil, and gas for years to come. The Pilot Program was created to help startups accelerate their paths to a commercial pilot, offering resources that address key pain points that many startups experience.


In addition to the resources that all SixLab startups receive, Pilot Program participants are provided with extra assistance and support. Below is a detailed look at what your company will receive as part of the SixLab Pilot Program.

  • An online community of like-minded energy innovators
