Climate Ventures 2.0 will pluck two startups from an IDEO hackathon next month

There are 10 spots in the water and agriculture startup accelerator. Two of those spots will be ventures from an IDEO hackathon.

We really like this picture.

Editor's note: An earlier version of this story reported that entrepreneurs must spend only two days of the three-month-long Climate Ventures 2.0 accelerator here in Philadelphia. In fact, they must spend the entirety of the three-month program in Philadelphia. It has been corrected. (1/31, 1:40 p.m.)
Earlier this month, GoodCompany Ventures announced it is taking applications to fill 10 spots in Climate Ventures 2.0, an accelerator for water and agriculture startups using climate data.

In an interview with Forbes last week, GoodCompany cofounder Garrett Melby said two of those spots will be filled by ventures participating in one of design firm IDEO‘s global innovation challenges, happening next month.

That leaves eight spots for applicants itching for a spot in the long-awaited CV2 accelerator. Accepted entrepreneurs will stay in Philadelphia for the three months of the accelerator portion of the program, after which they may receive finding to implement regional pilots, according to Melby.
