Hear from the 10 exciting Year 1 cohort startups shaping the future of the carbontech industry as they each present their unique solutions, the progress they’ve made over the six months of the C2V program, and where they are headed next.

The C2V Initiative is a multi-year collaboration among The Urban Future Lab (UFL), Greentown Labs, and the Fraunhofer USA TechBridge Program. This unique partnership is driving the creation of a thriving innovation ecosystem for the commercialization of carbontech—technologies that capture, convert, and store carbon dioxide (CO₂) into valuable end products or services. The C2V Initiative is supported by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) and the Consulate General of Canada in New York.
