Techstars opens applications for second TNC cohort

DENVER — Techstars, an international startup accelerator program based in Boulder, is again partnering with The Nature Conservancy for the second class of the Techstars Sustainability Accelerator program.

Applications are now open to entrepreneurs with commercially viable technologies to solve challenges facing nature and people.

“We had a very successful first class of entrepreneurs, and we are very much looking forward to continuing our partnership with Techstars with this second round of applicants,” Mark Tercek, CEO of The Nature Conservancy, said in a prepared statement. “Together, we can pursue technology breakthroughs that will help create a world where people and nature thrive together. As the world prepares to add more than 2 billion people in the next 30 years, we need to support businesses, especially entrepreneurs, who can rapidly scale technology to help provide food and water sustainably and tackle critical issues, like climate change.”

The Sustainability Accelerator will continue through 2020 and expects to attract thousands of potential applicant companies. Thirty high-potential companies will be selected for the program. Applications are now open and the program kicks off July 29. Applicants from around the world are welcome to apply.

“What continues to be so unique about the Techstars Sustainability Accelerator is that by partnering with The Nature Conservancy, the program is able to use the same technologies that have disrupted other industries like finance, healthcare, mobility and energy, to help make leaps and bounds forward when it comes to sustainability, which is without question at the height of importance and urgency in today’s changing climate,” said Brad Feld, co-founder of Techstars, in a statement. “Techstars is calling on entrepreneurs to apply for the 2019 class to advance their own development, and to bring the advanced technology solutions that we need to the forefront of sustainability.”
