Greentown Go: A Year of Climate Impact through Startup-Corporate Partnerships

View this email in your browser

Dear Friends of Greentown Labs,

2022 was an action-filled year here at Greentown Go, where we fostered startup-corporate partnerships to advance building tech, hydrogen, supply chain innovations, automotive materials solutions, and carbontech. Three programs concluded, with 20 startup graduates, and another four kicked off and are continuing into 2023. Throughout all these accelerators, we’re proud to have created more than 80 mentor relationships for our startup participants.

Even as we celebrate all that our Greentown Go partners and program participants accomplished together in 2022, there’s no time to waste when it comes to climate. We’re already deep underway with efforts for 2023, including the launch of the year’s newest program: Greentown Go Energize 2023 with Vineyard Wind and supported by the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center.

Read on to learn more about how Go Energize 2023 will advance responsible development in the offshore wind industry, in addition to other important Go developments.

As always, we’d appreciate your help sharing calls for applications with any startups in your network. If you’re a corporate partner interested in leading a Greentown Go program, you can reach out here. 

Thank you for supporting Greentown Go and your commitment to climate action!

Katherine St. James
Senior Director of Programs

We’re thrilled to announce the launch of Greentown Go Energize 2023 with Vineyard Wind, developer of the first utility-scale offshore wind farm in the United States, and supported by the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC). This program, created with the goal of fostering responsible offshore wind project development in the U.S., is seeking submissions from startups that are developing innovative solutions for offshore turbine monitoring and ecological data collection, as well as digital solutions to improve turbine efficiency and longevity. Know of a startup that could benefit from exposure and knowledge-sharing with key players in the offshore wind industry? Be sure to tell them to apply by April 4 and help spread the word to others in your network! For more info, read the full RFP. 

Spread the Word

Share our sample tweet below to help spread the word to innovators in your network who are developing critical solutions for responsible offshore wind development.

Is your startup developing innovative solutions that could be applied to the #offshorewind industry? @GreentownLabs is seeking applications for #GoEnergize2023 with @VineyardWindUS and @MassCEC! Learn how this #GreentownGo program can help your tech scale:


The transportation sector is responsible for 16 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions. While the transition to electric vehicles garners the bulk of industry and media attention, there are also countless areas across the automotive manufacturing value chain that are in vital need of innovative climatetech solutions. That’s why we partnered with BASF and Magna to launch Go Move 2022, which is advancing novel solutions to some of the auto industry’s toughest problems.

After a highly competitive selection and deliberation process that saw close to 100 applicants, a cohort of five cutting-edge startup participants was selected: Carbonova, Endeavor Composites, FibreCoat, Heartland Industries, and MITO Materials Solutions.

Stay tuned for future updates on this cohort as they continue to work with BASF and Magna to scale and deploy their tech!

Decarbonizing supply chains is critical to reducing emissions from the manufacturing sector and beyond. From production to packaging and distribution, each stage of the supply chain needs robust climatetech innovation to make a net-zero future a reality. Specifically, Go Make 2022 set out to find startups with solutions across supply chain management; packaging products and materials; alternative foods and ingredients; and green fleets and battery management. 

With close to 150 startup applicants, the field was incredibly competitive, but ultimately an international cohort of five participants was selected: Energiency, Moment Energy, Nfinite Nanotech, RenewCO₂, and Sensai Analytics. 

After a highly productive first workshop, the cohort is excited to keep collaborating with the team at Mitsubishi Corporation (Americas) and the M-Lab Companies!

We’ve wrapped up Year 2 of the Carbon to Value (C2V) Initiative—a unique partnership among the Urban Future Lab at NYU Tandon School of Engineering (UFL), Greentown, and Fraunhofer USA, and supported by NYSERDA—which combines the structure of a partnership accelerator program inspired by Greentown Go with exclusive access to industry leaders shaping the carbontech marketplace of tomorrow. 

A big thank you to Fluor Corporation, the Year 2 Cohort Champion, for its commitment and dedication to advancing the carbontech industry by working hand-in-hand with the program’s exciting cohort of eight innovative startups. Keep an eye out for a full recap of Year 2 of the C2V Initiative and some big news about Year 3 of the program!
