The first cohort of Climate Ventures 2.0 will be focused on innovations in ag and water adaptation efforts. In particular, material, information and biological technologies that can help agricultural and water systems bear the stresses of climate volatility - water excess, runoff, pooling, erosion, scarcity - without disrupting the health of watershed systems as a whole. Companies that can address these concerns with greater efficiency, lower cost and in a commercial sustainable model, favored

We are looking for innovations that address the following 2 problem statements in Water System and Agriculture Resilience.

1. Water System Resilience : Stormwater is one of the leading sources of pollutant loads to waterbodies. It occurs when precipitation falls at rates higher than what the land can absorb. The result is a flow of water across land surfaces that runs off into drains and waterbodies. Poorly managed stormwater flows transport pollutants and contribute to flooding and erosio...

The result is a flow of water across land surfaces that runs off into drains and waterbodies. Poorly managed stormwater flows transport pollutants and contribute to flooding and erosion problems.

Innovations that address this problem statement might include:
- Biofiltration including green infrastructure & environmental restoration
- Porous surfaces
- Sensors
- Predictive tech
- Catchment/water storage systems
- Monitoring systems for flow rates, water quality, soil moisture and nutrient excess.

2. Agricultural Resilience: Agriculture plays two distinct roles re watershed health. It acts as a buffer against (sub)urban sprawl and development pressure. It also contributes to water quality impairments through nutrient and bacteria loads.

Innovations that address this problem statement might include:
- Precision ag
- Soil and crop tech
- Monitoring
- Waste: animal production waste surface waste
- Weather modeling
- Predictive analytics
- IoT remote sensing

What entrepreneurs can expect:​
- 3-month accelerator in Spring, 2017
- A $25k non-equity GoodCompany Ventures Impact Grant
- The most rigorous business and financial development programming, averaging $10mm in investment per cohort
- 1-on-1 mentoring from policy experts, Fortune 500 industry advisors and investors
- Connection to global network of advisors, investors and peers through USAID's Global Innovation Exchange
- Opportunity to pitch for investment at private investor events in NYC, DC and SFO
- Opportunity to pitch for $75,000 in pilot funding
- Curated pilot opps within the Rockefeller 100 Resilient Cities Network and Delaware River Basin

Attention! We need investment!!!

Good afternoon. I am the founder and head www.innovator.biz and I live in Ukraine.On the Internet I found information that You are funding projects such as venture capital or investment companies. I would like that You looked at my project, which in its basic sense involves a combination of investment and crowdfunding, creating a full cycle the marketplace of ideas with its unique business model. Platform "Innovator" already has over 200 innovative ideas that can be potentiality and implement. I hope that my project will interest You. My contact information is in the presentation which is below.
Thanks in advance, the founder and head of platform "Innovator" Vadim Vashchenko.
