Happy New Year! | 2016 News from the MF Fire Team
Happy New Year Everyone!
We hope everyone had a great 2015! As the year came to a close the MF Fire team was hard at work testing our brand new Mulciber smart electric stove. Early tests show super fast start-up, incredibly clean burning, and a beautiful full fire view.We put together a quick video for you during one of our tests here. We would love to hear your feedback and if you like the video please share with anyone else who would enjoy it. We have more footage of our Mulciber in action on the way.
We’re also seeking additional funding for our smart electric stove in 2016. MF Fire is polishing up our business plan, and we expect to gain more investors through crowdfunding & VC funding. If you know anyone seeking a great business to support, please share MF Fire with him or her.
We will have a lot more news in the next few weeks! Also, check out below for a recap of the exciting year we just finished.

2015 MF Fire Year in Review
- We spent the first half of the year building upon our competition success & developing the prototype into an actual consumer-ready wood burning stove. If you haven’t heard, we won the MIT Clean Energy Award for Energy Efficiency, Grand Prize in the Wood Stove Design Competition, Final Four of the ACC Clean Energy Challenge, and a few more. We learned a lot in 2014 that we used to further engineer the Mulciber smart electric stove in 2015.
- We launched the first Mulciber (now renamed the Catalyst Wood Burning Stove), and we were thankful that demand outstripped supply for testing. We’ve used the feedback from our testers over the last year to improve our model, and we’re preparing it for production & sale in 2016. If you didn’t get to test, stay tuned – we plan to have units available this summer.
- Our alma mater stopped by to ask us about our success. The University of Maryland Diamondback newspaper featured MF Fire, sharing how we went from students to engineering challengers to a stand alone company.
