RIT’s Clean Energy Incubator will recognize six companies that have graduated from the incubator throughout the past year. A graduation ceremony will be held at 5 p.m. Nov. 14 in Student Innovation Hall. RIT President Bill Destler speaks at 5:30 p.m. The graduates are Exiscan, OptiCool Technologies, Sweetwater Energy, Tenrehte, ThingWorx and Vnomics.
