On November 19, Skytree took part in a pitch competition alongside 11 Dutch cleantech scaleups driving cutting-edge solutions. In the final pitch competition co-hosted with Greentown Labs, judges Ariel Horowitz, PhD, Ryan Dings, and Mark Shu had a tough choice to make and in the end, Skytree emerged as the winner!
Hosted by the Netherlands Innovation Network and Greentown Labs, this competition was the culmination of a 6-week immersive program connecting these scaleups to Massachusetts in support of their goals to expand globally. It was a unique opportunity to connect with award-winning, venture-backed CleanTech innovators around the world. The end prize was a 6-month incubation prize at Greentown Labs.
But what is Greentown Labs? Greentown Labs is the largest climate tech incubator in North America, headquartered in Somerville, Massachusetts - just outside of Boston, and provides 100,000 sq. ft. of lab, office, and community space for about 100 member companies. It is a community that wants to change the way people think about, engage with, and use energy. Change how we build our buildings, how we get around our cities and towns, how we grow our food, how we manage our water. What binds this community is a collective goal: creating a greener, more sustainable world for all.
We were very excited to hear the news here in Amsterdam. This represents a unique opportunity to connect with award-winning, venture-backed cleantech innovators. The whole team at Skytree is delighted to join the community of bold, passionate entrepreneurs, who are creating solutions for today’s biggest climate and environmental challenges.
