2/17 - Trending Startups

Battery health, circular economy, efficient material structures, and indoor air quality.

Notice anything new this week? My colleague, Swarnav, CEO of Touchlight and fellow writer for The Impact, designed my new header (font and logo)!

There are a few new opportunities for startups:

  • Third Derivative: Entrepreneurs working on solutions that address any major greenhouse gas emissions sector can learn more and apply here. Applications are being considered on an ongoing basis for rolling admissions to their next cohort.

  • XPRIZE recently announced details for Elon Musk’s $100 million carbon capture prize.

Before I get into this week’s startups, I'd like to thank all my readers so far - I have seen some amazing analytics on these emails so far this year, with each one being opened at a rate of > 200%. With the 11 startups highlighted, there have been 25 introductions.
