Emily Reichert, CEO of Greentown Labs
As the world’s population is growing, we need to find ways to meet the increasing demand without destroying the environment. We need to find new ways of producing and consuming energy and move away from our dependency on fossil fuels. Every day, entrepreneurs and innovators are working hard to develop technologies to address this global energy challenge.
One of the biggest obstacles entrepreneurs and innovators face is gaining access to the right resources and markets that will allow for commercialization of their technologies.
Science-based companies like DSM and programs like the Bright Minds Challenge play a crucial role in leading the transition to a low carbon economy by helping clean-tech startups develop and commercialize their technologies at an accelerated rate. At Greentown Labs, we are passionate about innovation, entrepreneurship and technology that will help mitigate climate change. The DSM Bright Minds Challenge encompasses all three of these areas and is helping to turn ideas on how to address the global issues into reality.
