Our Story

Atlas Energy Systems was co-founded in 2013 by Ian Hamilton, CEO, and three other Purdue undergraduates. Ian pursued the business and its technology further; first as his MS thesis at Purdue, then as a fellow of the Argonne National Laboratory Chain Reactions Innovation (CRI) Program. Atlas is now located at the Oregon State University ATAMI facility in Corvallis, OR and is currently looking to grow its team and seeking outside investment for its SEED round of funding.
