Earlier in 2018, Techstars, in partnership with The Nature Conservancy launched the first class of the three-month Techstars Sustainability Accelerator program. The mentorship-based program based in Denver, Colorado helps entrepreneurs scale-up technology that is solving for a sustainable future across food, water and climate change.
With the world’s population projected to grow to 10 billion people by 2050, technological innovation is essential if we want to live in a world where people have the food, water, energy and economic growth they need without sacrificing nature. This collaboration between traditionally disconnected sectors is looking to be a driver of smart solutions to achieve the path to sustainability.
On Wednesday, October 17th, the accelerator will cap off the intense program with Demo Day in Colorado. The event is an opportunity for all companies to showcase their technologies and pitch to investors. The sold-out event will be streamed live on YouTube at 5:30 PM Mountain Time.
