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.

According to sister site Technical.ly Philly, each of the 10 companies in the inaugural CV2 cohort will receive $25,000, mentoring and office space in coworking space Benjamin’s Desk.

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 FoundationNASA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration).

Interested? Apply by March 15.
