It’s been a long time coming, but GoodCompany Ventures‘ newest accelerator Climate Ventures 2.0 (CV2) is (actually) finally underway.
The accelerator, based on the organization’s previous social enterprise accelerator FastFWD and inspired by Barack Obama’s Climate Data Initiative, will task its cohort with utilizing climate data to build water and agriculture innovations over the span of three months.
Originally announced in 2014, the accelerator was supposed to kick off two summers ago. GoodCompany founder Garrett Melby told Generocity last year that the process of launching would continue to prolong as more partners came to the table (Clinton Global Initative, Rockefeller Foundation, NASA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration).
