Two Co-Founders of Yellowstone Energy both grew-up near nuclear plants

Matt Ellis and Sam Shaner

The two Co-Founders of Yellowstone Energy are from opposite ends of the country, so it was fortuitous that they met as doctoral classmates at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, better known as MIT.

In spite of that geographic diversity, both shared something in common – growing-up near nuclear plants, and it is that interest in nuclear energy that has brought them to Oak Ridge National Laboratory as part of the inaugural “Innovation Crossroads” (IC) program.
